The Massawippi Foundation and the Massawippi Conservation Trust acknowledge that lands that we have protected in perpetuity stand on the unceded ancestral territory of the Wabanaki Nation (Abenaki), the Ndakina. We acknowledge that their history and relationship to this land and the water that flows through it, inspire us and guide our conservation work in our role as stewards of the land.
