Native American Studies: Wabanaki Studies

Resources for research in Native American Studies.

Who are the Wabanaki?

"Today, the four Maine Indian tribes are the Maliseet, Micmac, Penobscot and Passamaquoddy, known collectively as the Wabanaki, "People of the Dawnland." Each community maintains its own tribal government, community schools, cultural center and each manages its respective lands and natural resources. Although most of Maine's Native people belong to one of these four federally recognized groups and reside on tribal lands, other Native people live in towns and cities across the State." From the Abbe Museum in Bar Harbor, Maine, a museum of Wabanaki art, history, and culture. Find more information by and about Wabanaki peoples at the link above.
