Please join us for an information session and chance to ask questions about First Light. Peter Forbes and Ciona Ulbrich, two of the leaders of First Light, will discuss why they suggest land trusts should care about Wabanaki sovereignty and access to land. First Light’s work since 2017 has raised awareness about Wabanaki history and land loss in the conservation community. The collaboration is also an effort to build the capacity, voice and power of Wabanaki leadership to address their needs around land stewardship, as well as to organize leadership from Maine’s conservation community to respond to Wabanaki requests. Peter and Ciona will describe the process of committing your organization to our 2020-2021 Learning Journey Cohort and field any questions you may have about this work or First Light.
