Whose Woods These Are . . .

The land known as the Wildlands is the homeland of the Wabanaki people. Issues of water, territorial rights, and encroachment upon Indigenous sacred sites are ongoing. We recognize that the Wabanaki Tribal Nations (Maliseet, Mi' kmaq, Passamaquoddy, and Penobscot) are distinct, sovereign, legal, and political entities with their own powers of self-governance and self-determination. We respect Wabanaki stewardship of this land for thousands of years before Europeans arrived, and we are committed to working with them to address management, access, and other issues.
