Materials to Support Wabanaki (Maine Native) Studies
INFORMATIONAL LETTER NO. 18
TO: Superintendents of Schools
In June 2009, the Wabanaki Studies website was launched to support Maine K-12 educators as they implement Maine law 20-A MRSA Section 4706(2) (formerly LD 291) and the Wabanaki (Maine Native) Studies component included in Maine’s Learning Results: Parameters for Essential Instruction.
To visit the site, please go online to http://www.maine.gov/education/lres/ss/wabanaki/index.shtml.
This online learning resource is the result of a collaborative effort between the four nations of the Wabanaki in Maine, Native and non-Native educators, Maine Indian Tribal-State Commission, Maine Department of Education, and University of Maine System. The project builds upon the early work of the Wabanaki Studies Commission, which was established by the Maine Legislature in 2001.
Schools and school administrative units are responsible for implementing Wabanaki Studies in each grade span. Instruction in Wabanaki Studies serves multiple ends:
Teachers are encouraged to approach this content as integrative rather than as an “add on”.
