Our mission as the Wabanaki Commission on Land and Stewardship is to improve the health and well-being of Wabanaki people through a sustained effort to expand our access, management, and ownership of lands to practice our land-based cultures across Wabanaki homeland in what is now the State of Maine.
We, representatives of the Penobscot Nation, Passamaquoddy Tribe-Indian Township, Passamaquoddy Tribe-Pleasant Point, the Houlton Band of Maliseet Indians, and the Mi'kmaq Nation, support this mission by acquiring lands and by sharing and co-managing, in the spirit of reciprocity, land that is currently owned by land trust and conservation organizations.
Through partnership and education, we work collaboratively to bring Wabanaki expertise and perspective into the conservation movement. As Wabanaki representatives, we offer our insights and wisdom to the Land Trust community to identify and protect lands of great importance across the State of Maine.
Representing five nations, we are improving the health and well-being of Wabanaki people by expanding our access, management, and ownership of our ancestral lands to practice our cultures. We currently have over 20+ land projects that range from creating physical access to harvesting places to acquisition of sacred sites.
