The University of Maine recognizes that it is located on Marsh Island in the homeland of the Penobscot Nation, where issues of water and territorial rights, and encroachment upon sacred sites, are ongoing. Penobscot homeland is connected to the other Wabanaki Tribal Nations — the Passamaquoddy, Maliseet, and Micmac — through kinship, alliances and diplomacy. The university also recognizes that the Penobscot Nation and the other Wabanaki Tribal Nations are distinct, sovereign, legal and political entities with their own powers of self-governance and self-determination.

The Hudson Museum’s mission is to celebrate 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.
