Our Land Acknowledgment:
We acknowledge we farm on the stolen homeland of the Wabanaki people. We hold great respect and gratitude for the many generations of Indigenous peoples that have co-existed with this land we now call Maine for thousands of years and continue to do so today. We acknowledge the ongoing violation of the Wabanaki’s water, land and sacred rights to this day. We pledge to stand with the Wabanaki in their fight for tribal sovereignty and to support the many Indigenous-led food sovereignty and environmental programs that are thriving in the Wabanaki Homeland today.
