series of conversations with Indigenous people
about the history of interactions between the
Original inhabitants and European settlers,
the current conditions among Native people,

and Vermont, and with the Wampanoag, in
Massachusetts have been difficult but

such effort with the Abenaki and Maliseet
people of the Gulf of Maine.
