Image of the text above the maine entrance to the Hudson Museum showing the Penobscot word for 's/he reminds h/her'.The University of Maine recognizes that it is located on Marsh Island in the homeland of the Penobscot Nation, and the University of Maine at Machias is situated in the homeland of the Passamaquoddy Tribe. Both of our universities recognize that in these homelands, issues of water and territorial rights, and encroachment upon sacred sites, are ongoing. Penobscot and Passamaquoddy homelands are connected to the other Wabanaki Tribal Nations — the Maliseet and Mi’kmaq — through kinship, alliances and diplomacy. UMaine and its regional campus also recognizes that the Wabanaki Tribal Nations are distinct, sovereign, legal and political entities with their own powers of self-governance and self-determination.

Open to CollaborateThe Hudson Museum is committed to the development of new modes of collaboration, engagement, and partnership for the care and stewardship of past and future heritage collections.

The Hudson Museum celebrates cultural diversity and inclusion through our exhibitions, events and programs. We are all interconnected through our common humanity. We decry the death of George Floyd and other senseless violence. Bigotry, racism, inequality and injustice must be addressed and to this end, we will continue to work to honor and reaffirm our mission to foster inclusivity and diversity in all that we do.
