Ranco speaks to News Center Maine about Maine Indian Claims Settlement Act

News Center Maine interviewed Darren Ranco, associate professor of anthropology and coordinator of Native American research at the University of Maine, about the Maine Indian Claims Settlement Act. While the act was written in a way that allowed the tribes to go back and make amendments as needed, they said that process didn’t work as they expected. “I think people had been promised, maybe incorrectly, that even if things were a little bit off that it was fixable, that it could be the first draft or something,” Ranco said.
