Wabanaki Resources Portal

A Foundations project to plan for the development of an online portal to archival materials dealing with Wabanaki history and culture that are held at University of Maine‚Äôs Hudson Museum, Maine Folklife Center, and Fogler Library.  The portal would serve research, public, and educational audiences.

The McGillicuddy Humanities Center (MHC), the College of Education and Human Development (COEHD), and the Native American Programs at the University of Maine (UMaine) together with partners at the Maine Department of Education (DOE), and members of the Wabanaki Confederacy (the Penobscot Nation, Passamaquoddy Tribe, Aroostook Band of Micmacs and Houlton Band of Maliseets), propose to investigate developing a prototype portal to provide centralized access to, and increase discoverability of underutilized Wabanaki resources and archival collections distributed across a number of institutions.
