Finding Common Ground in Our Stand for the Earth

When I am asked who I am and where I come from I am able to answer with one word, Penahwabskek. Penahwabskek is the name of a place, ‘the place where the white rocks come out of the water’, and; it is the name of a people, the tribal nation who makes its home along the waters of the Penobscot River. For me, being Penahwabskek means that my roots are embedded in the land and nourished by the waters of the Penobscot River.
