LWV-Downeast Monthly Meeting - NEW DATE

We're so pleased to be able to reschedule this great event with Maulian Dana.

Decolonizing Thanksgiving. We'll look at the Thanksgiving holiday through Native American eyes. History has always been written by the winners -- those who feel that they have won the right to portray that history in a light that waters down the consequences of their 'winning'. However, by unpacking the truth we can all reach a place of better understanding and humanity. With Maulian Dana, Tribal Ambassador of the Penobscot Nation.

Lunch will be offered, $10 contribution suggested.
