Program Description


View a 60-minute documentary produced by Trickster Cultural Center titled D-Day Warriors: It Was Our War Too.

Seventy-five years after D-Day, on Omaha Beach in Normandy, France, one of the last surviving Native American D-Day veterans remembers his fellow soldiers in his traditional way - with ceremony, prayer, and through storytelling. Charles Shay, Penobscot Indian, was just 19 years old when he landed on Omaha Beach in the first wave as a medic on June 6th, 1944. Traveling back to Omaha Beach each year with a delegation of Native American veterans, he honors those who gave their all that day and continues to pave the path to healing across generations and ethnicities.

For adults and high school students.
