Wabanaki Voices
Date: Wednesday, July 22 @ 6:30 - 8:00

Wabanaki communities have lived on the land now called ‘Maine’ for over 10,000 years. After just 200 years of Maine statehood, how are Wabanaki people and communities asking and answering the questions Who are we? Where are we? How did we get here? and Where might we be going? How did the articulation of statehood continue the legacy of colonization, and how do state policies continue to do so? How have and do the ethics and politics of colonization shape the lives of all Maine communities – including Wabanaki communities?
