The Wabanaki Alliance will hold a rally for Indigenous Peoples’ Day at the Maine State House in Augusta on Monday, Oct. 9 to show support for Question 6, a constitutional amendment that will appear on the November 7 ballot. The event will be held 9:30-11:30am between the State House and Cross Office Building. 

Question 6 would require the state to print the full text of the Maine State Constitution, including a section about Maine’s original treaty obligations to the Wabanaki Nations that has been missing from printed versions for more than 100 years.

The rally will feature a number of speakers, including Penobscot Nation Ambassador and Wabanaki Alliance President Maulian Bryant. Also in attendance will be members of the Wabanaki Alliance Tribal Coalition, a group of more than 170 businesses and organizations that support Wabanaki inherent sovereignty.
