SongWeavers of Maine takes place on the traditional lands of the Wabanaki Confederacy. In the face of ongoing threats to the land and water rights and self-determination of the Wabanaki people, we seek to weave threads of reparations, right relationship, and regeneration in part by contributing a portion of proceeds from the camp to organizations supporting Wabanaki health, wellness, and self-determination.
