The Bangor Daily News reported that two University of Maine faculty members, gkisedtanamoogk, a Wampanoag from Cape Cod who now teaches in the UMaine Native American Studies and the Peace and Reconciliation programs, and Gail Werrbach, director of the School of Social Work, have been named to a five-member panel, the Maine Wabanaki-State Child Welfare Truth and Reconciliation Commission, that will investigate former government practices that moved Native American children from their tribes to foster homes with non-native families. Channel 2 (WLBZ) and Channel 5 (WABI) also reported on the naming of commission members. A Bangor Daily News editorial endorsed the investigation.
