July 11 Event to Celebrate Friendships and Alliances

🔊 Nihkaniyane Pronunciation

The Wabanaki Alliance will host our second annual Nihkaniyane: Let’s Go Forward Together event, a celebration of our friendships and alliances, from 5:30-7 PM on Thursday, July 11 in Bar Harbor. 

The Wabanaki Alliance was formed in 2020 when the Houlton Band of Maliseet Indians, Mi’kmaq Nation, Passamaquoddy Tribe, and Penobscot Nation joined together to work to improve upon the 1980 Maine Indian Claims Settlement Act (MISCA) and educate the public on tribal histories and communities.

Over the past four years, the Wabanaki Alliance has faced setbacks, including the continued failure of the State of Maine to recognize our sovereignty, and celebrated accomplishments, from the passage of an amendment of the Maine Constitution to restore our history to the strength of the relationships and alliances we have built in our continued work in support of Wabanaki Nations.

That’s why we are hosting our second annual Nihkaniyane: Let’s Go Forward Together event, a celebration of our friendships and alliances, from 5:30 PM to 7 PM on Thursday, July 11th in the backyard at the Abbe Museum in Bar Harbor. All funds from this special celebration will bolster the Wabanaki Alliance’s ongoing work.

We are excited to honor Beth Ahearn, Carol Wishcamper, and Rena Newell for their support, friendship, and dedication to the Wabanaki Alliance and Wabanaki people.
