The discussion is free and open to the public.
We're grateful to the Nathaniel Davis Fund for providing funding to support Chief Dana's 5th Grade residency. Funding has also been provided for this program and residency by The Maine Humanities Council and the National Endowment for the Humanities (NEH) as part of the American Rescue Plan Act of 2021.
Dana is the former Chief of the Penobscot Nation, culture preservationist, long time
educator and teacher, and professional basketmaker. He was raised learning traditional
skills and values from tribal elders and now teaches students about
Wabanaki art and culture throughout the state.
He is our 5th Grade resident artist.
