Enacting Culture

Land Back isn’t about taking all the lands. It’s about providing opportunities for Wabanaki people to stay connected or reconnect with relationships to the land. From following our ancestors' footsteps as we pass through canoe portages to creating places we can gather, share, and learn with each other and from the land. Yes, it’s about the plants, medicines, and food; but it’s also about the sense of community and strength that occurs through these relationships to the land and each other. The practices below celebrate those relationships and the many forms they take as the land brings us back together.
