“Daughter of Dawn” Extraordinary 1920 silent film with all-Indian cast re-released after a painstaking restoration project
Extraordinary footage from a 1920 silent film which historians feared had been lost forever has been brought back to life.

The film, called The Daughter Of Dawn, was shot in the Wichita Mountains of south west Oklahoma in July 1920 and used an all-American Indian cast.

However, the footage had not been seen since it was screened more than 90 years ago in October 1920, at the College Theater in Los Angeles.
