Finding D-QU: The Lonely Struggle of California's Only Tribal College (Video)
In 2005 D-Q University, California's only tribal college, was shut down after a 35-year struggle. Since then, the school's board of trustees, past students, and community members have tried to reopen the school against all odds. Finding D-QU explores stories of hope, healing and conflict that arise as D-Q University's supporters fight to hold on to a dream that was never fully realized. Will D-QU collapse, or will the vision of self-reliant educational ever be fulfilled?
