Join the Wabanaki Alliance Coalition

More than 200 businesses and organizations have joined the Wabanaki Alliance Tribal Coalition, a group that supports Wabanaki inherent sovereignty and helps advance the work of the Wabanaki Alliance, a 501(c)(4) nonprofit organization of Wabanaki nations in Maine created in June 2020. As bipartisan support for the Alliance and our work continues to expand, we welcome even more organizations to sign on and be part of this historic effort. Find more information below about our Coalition. If your business or organization is interested in joining us, click on the button below to complete our sign-on form

Why was the Wabanaki Alliance formed?

The Wabanaki Alliance was formed to educate the people of Maine and to advocate for recognition of the inherent sovereignty of the Wabanaki nations: the Houlton Band of Maliseet Indians, Mi’kmaq Nation, Passamaquoddy Tribe (at Motahkomikuk and Sipayik), and Penobscot Nation.

Why is Wabanaki inherent sovereignty so important?

Wabanaki nations currently do not have the same rights, powers, privileges, and immunities as other federally recognized tribes in the United States. This injustice has resulted in decades of social and economic barriers for the Wabanaki people and surrounding communities. Learn more in our Understanding Tribal Sovereignty page. 

Who supports the Wabanaki Alliance?

Bipartisan support for the Alliance and its efforts continues to grow in the Maine Legislature as well as among businesses; organizations advocating for the environment, conservation, and economic and social justice; faith-based and youth groups; unions; professional and philanthropic organizations; and thousands of individuals.

What does it mean to be a member of the Wabanaki Alliance Tribal Coalition?

Supporters’ level of commitment varies, with each participant contributing how and what they can in the form of time, talent, and financial contributions. Some supporters actively participate in the Wabanaki Alliance Tribal Coalition working group, which meets regularly and includes individuals and organizational representatives who are dedicated to advancing the work of the Alliance and promoting respect and support for Wabanaki inherent sovereignty. As a Tribal Coalition member, you will be publicly identified as a supporter of the Wabanaki Alliance and invited to endorse individual actions and priority legislation as opportunities arise.
