Maine legislators are considering LD 1626, a bill to protect Wabanaki rights by restoring tribal self-government to tribes in Maine. Based on consensus recommendations from a bipartisan task force convened by the Maine Legislature, the legislation addresses long-standing issues with a land claims act passed in 1980 that governs the relationship between the state and the tribes in Maine. Tribal leaders and allies are working to pass this important legislation and need your help!
