Land Acknowledgement

History House recognizes and honors the Penobscot, Passamaquoddy, Mi’Kmaq Nations, and Maliseet tribes of Maine, collectively known as Wabanaki, “People of the Dawn”. These tribes have stewarded Maine for generations, stretching back to before colonial settlers forcibly occupied the area. The History House is on the unceded territory of the Abanaki Indian Nation, and all of Maine are on unceded lands once overseen by the Wabanaki. Let us remember this history and move forward with a commitment to justice and alignment with the tribes in Maine.

While we are not responsible for what our ancestors did, we can acknowledge that we live under their legacy.
