Last spring, the state of Maine Legislature established a Maine Tribal Task Force to review the Maine Indian Land Claims Settlement Act of 1980. The task force was assembled for the state of Maine to reassess its relationship with the indigenous communities located within the state and has been asked to report back to the Legislature with recommended revisions. Lawmakers have referenced past disagreements over the language of this agreement and noted that it is crucial for the act to undergo revision.
