Voices from the Barrens: Native People, Blueberries and Sovereignty

This event is no longer on sale.

Thursday January 28

6:00 PM  –  8:00 PM

Voices from the Barrens: Native People, Blueberries and Sovereignty documents the wild blueberry harvest of the Wabanaki People from the USA and Canada. Each August, the Wabanaki Tribes of Maritime Canada and Maine travel to Maine’s wild blueberry barrens to harvest. This traditional, hand raked practice is passed down to each generation, but 21st century agri-business and a global food market threaten the tradition’s future.
