Territorial Acknowledgement

University of Maine Cooperative Extension, recognizes that we are located around the state in the homeland of Wabanaki peoplewhere issues of water and territorial rights, and encroachment upon sacred sites are ongoing. We recognize that Wabanaki (MaliseetMicmac, Passamaquoddy, and Penobscot) Tribal Nations are distinct, sovereign, legal, and political entities with their own powers of selfgovernance, and selfdetermination. We respect the Wabanaki People as the original stewards of this land. We thank them for their strength and resilience in caring for this land for hundreds of years. We recognize that we have a responsibility to continue working to change the systems that continue to allow injustice and inequality to exist. We are committed to listening, learning, and building relationships while serving as stewards to this land.
