I want to share the land acknowledgment that was authored in collaboration with the Tribal Nations in this, our territory. The first and most critical is our location here on Marsh Island, the homeland of my tribe, the Penobscot Nation. We recognize that issues of water, territorial rights, and the encroachment upon our sacred sites are ongoing. You need not be that aware to recognize the ongoing takings by the state of Maine, among others. We also recognize that the Penobscot Homeland is connected to other tribal nations the Passamaquoddy, Maliseet, Mi’kmaq and Abenaki through kinship, and the confederation we began long ago.
