- More Points of Contact: Expand the points of contact between Wabanaki and land trusts, create more some shared experiences, on which some longer term and deeper relationships can, and we hope will, be built;
- Awareness, Understanding and Sensitivity: More and better understanding among Learning Journey participants, and others with whom they share, of the realities and history of Wabanaki history and presence in Maine
- Learning about Options: Creating and providing clear information on ways that Wabanaki people might work with land trusts, to feel welcome on land trust preserves, to create access for ceremonies, traditional uses, traditional plant cultivation or harvests, art forms, or written or oral history and storytelling in or on special places around Maine that land trusts own or manage.
- Share Land Trust Land: Create a way to show land trust lands to Wabanaki. There may be special places that native people don’t realize are managed or owned by land trusts, and therefore accessible for walking or field trips, or for signs that tell about the native history or name.
- Learning About Tools: An awareness/understanding of the pros and cons, and some examples of some of the tools used in other parts of the country to solidify cultural uses and heritage tied to land trust lands, which might be used in Maine.
