The League of Women Voters of Maine presented a series to promote a better understanding of the past and present of the Wabanaki indigenous people in 2021. The four-part series dove into difficult truths about the colonization of Maine and how understanding Dawnland today can help us become better allies of the Wabanaki tribes.
