Exploring Wabanaki Maine History

Fishing weir at Pleasant Point, Maine

This two-hour workshop involves participants in “experiencing” events over 450 years of history. Participants take a bit of a risk – to experience themselves, one another, and this place differently.  Local community members will be reading to the group. Carla Hunt and M Therese Duffy will be leading the program. The Friends of the South Berwick Public Library are sponsoring the program which is open to all.

Teens are encouraged to attend.  The two hour format and content of the program may not be appropriate for younger folk.

Maine-Wabanaki REACH is a cross-cultural collaborative of Wabanaki and non-Native people. Wabanaki are the Indigenous people of Maine. REACH promotes decolonization by advancing the health, wellness, and self-determination of Wabanaki people.

REACH works in Maine communities educating, providing tools, and cultivating partnerships toward the goal of decolonizing our communities and institutions through understanding the truth of what happened in this land and taking actions to repair harms.
