Kari would like to acknowledge that we are on the island of Pesamkuk and the homeland of the vibrant community of the Wabanaki Confederacy, the People of the Dawn. She makes this acknowledgment with awareness of continual violations of water, territorial rights, and sacred sites to the Wabanaki.
This statement is not only an acknowledgment of the damages and wrongs that have occurred, and continue to occur, but also an invitation to participate in the healing process. Please take some time to visit the organization Wabanaki REACH at MaineWabanakiReach.org. We all have work to do, and there is full appreciation for the patience that has been allotted as we process through this and work to contribute to the healing.
