I've been working to assemble a wide-flung selection of indigenous voices from Native Americans and First Nations people to include in my Voices of Color/BLM new book stock here at the Green Hand. I've finally drawn together enough of a library that there are plenty of titles for readers to browse through. I hope you enjoy the range of voices here!
Here in Maine we are hoping to see recognition of tribal sovereignty for the Wabanaki nation ratified soon. I stand with the Penobscot, Mi'kmaq, Maliseet, Passamaquoddy and Abenaki tribes. They are here with us. We are on their land. How can we hope to live alongside each other if we pretend they are just shadows on the Maine frontier?
