First Light Learning Journey

First Light Learning Journey, a year-long program including 50 conservation organizations in Maine to learn best practices for sharing and returning land to Wabanaki, will host a screening and panel with Wabanaki blueberry rakers. First Light is showing Voices from the Barrens because it gives a vision of what’s possible when Wabanaki relationships to the land were restored through the Settlement Act at one Passamaquoddy blueberry barren. It tells a story of Wabanaki peoples’ connection to place, the traditions they practice on the land, and community that this allows for.
