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" looks at the often conflicting relationship between the board and the property’s occupants. This current struggle frames the history of the school, beginning with its establishment in the midst of the 1960s civil rights activism, and outlines its original vision as a space for self-determination in higher education. The film provides a lens through which we can critically examine the wider American Indian movement toward self-determination and sovereignty in its historical context, as it exists today.
