Maine-Wabanaki REACH workshops have been well received across the state with over 800 Mainers participating. Maine and Wabanaki people are at an historical juncture in their long relationship. 350 Maine is hosting this workshop, an opportunity for non-Native people to reflect on our shared history and future with Native people. It includes a brief experience of the colonizing history of Maine; relationships with Wabanaki people; awareness of white privilege; and an introduction to decolonization of our organizations and institutions.
Maine-Wabanaki REACH is a cross-cultural organization providing educational programs to help people share the truth, support healing, and work toward decolonization and Wabanaki self-determination. REACH initiated the Maine-Wabanaki State Child Welfare Truth and Reconciliation Commission and currently provides educational and healing opportunities in Wabanaki and Maine communities.
This workshop is free and REACH welcomes donations - suggesting $50.
