Island of the Blue Dolphins

Based on a true story, Island of the Blue Dolphins is a time-honored tale that shares the life of Karana, a young Native American girl stranded alone on an island for 18 years. It is written in a poetic, narrative style and is centered around the events that took place on a real island off the coast of California first settled by Native Americans in ~2,000 B.C. As with many great stories, we will also have the chance to view the movie to compare and contrast different versions of Karana’s tale.
