Walk for Historical and Ecological Recovery – Launch Event

May 9 @ 5:30 pm - 8:00 pm

Over the course of 2024, partners committed to surfacing the truths of colonization and oppression in the place known for millennia by the Wabanaki people as the Dawnland will engage with local communities on a journey across land and water, shining a light on the ways that Indigenous, Black, and settler-descendent populations are represented—or not—in Maine’s commemorative landscape.

Convened by the public history nonprofit Atlantic Black Box, the Walk for Historical and Ecological Recovery (WHERE2024) is a broad-based and community-engaged effort carried out in partnership with Wabanaki REACH, Indigo Arts Alliance, Community Change Inc., and In Kinship Collective.

Over seven months, a series of walks and programs situated in seven locations throughout the state will engage the public in surfacing suppressed stories of genocide and survival, enslavement and resistance, displacement and represencing.

Join WHERE2024 partners on Thursday, May 9 at 5:30 pm at 35 Little River Lane, Freeport, Maine, for a launch event hosted by the Land We Live On to kick off this epic collective journey.
