Support for Wabanaki Alliance legislation

The Wabanaki Alliance is asking for your support on a bill that is currently working its way through the Maine legislature. LD 2007, An Act to Advance Self-determination for Wabanaki Nations, would restore tribal sovereignty to the Wabanaki Nations by establishing that the Passamaquoddy Tribe, the Penobscot Nation, the Houlton Band of Maliseet Indians and the Mi’kmaq Nation have the same rights to self-determination as other federally recognized Indian tribes within the United States. The Wabanaki Alliance is suggesting the following actions:
  1. Contact your state representative and state senator. Don't know who they are? Find it in the LD 2007 Toolkit at https://www.wabanakialliance.com/ld-2007-legislators/.
  2. Submit a letter to the editor or op-ed. See https://www.wabanakialliance.com/lteguide/.
  3. If you use social media, consider posting your testimony and encourage others to contact their legislators in support of LD 2007.
