The Maine Humanities Council, a statewide non-profit organization, uses the humanities— literature, history, philosophy, and culture — as a tool for positive change in Maine communities. Our programs and grants encourage critical thinking and conversations across social, economic, and cultural boundaries.
This New Books, New Readers series will feature the Wabanaki people. The Wabanaki communities have lived on the land now called Maine for over 10,000 years. How have Wabanaki people asked and answered the questions who are we? where are we? how did we get here? And where might we be going? – before ‘Maine’, as ‘Maine’ became a state? How are Wabanaki people and communities asking and answering these and other questions now, after 200 years of living in ‘Maine’?
This series will meet 4 times this semester on the following Tuesdays:
- February 11
- March 17
- April 14
- May 5
