This spring, The Maine Art Museum Trail is proud to present a digital program series that explores the notion of “making a home” and what that means for institutions and the communities they exist within, bringing to light the stories that have not been told and reflect on the changing museum field.
Maulian Dana is the first individual to hold the position of the Penobscot Nation Tribal Ambassador. Through her role of an Ambassador, Dana presents issues important to both the Penobscot Nation and to ever wider Native and non-Native audiences. These issues range from land use, water use and tribal sovereignty, to violence against Native American women, the eradication of the use of Native American mascots, and replacing Columbus Day with a holiday that honors the Indigenous communities present thousands of years before European contact.
Maulian Dana will be introduced by Chris Newell, Executive Director of the Abbe Museum & Senior Partner to Wabanaki Nations.
