Abstract/ Summary

We, the staff of the Office for Diversity and Inclusion, would first like to acknowledge that we sit on Penobscot Land. The Penobscot Nation is one of four tribal nations (along with the Passamaquoddy, Micmac, and Maliseet) that make up the Wabanaki Confederacy. Even as we acknowledge that many injustices, particularly related to land and water, continue today, we also are aware that we benefit directly from being on this land and from the exploitation of the people who were here first.
