Mainers pride themselves on their independence, and the rugged landscapes where they forge their lives and identities. This year’s Dirigo Docs program honors the sovereignty of the Wabanaki people and their longstanding stewardship of the place we now call Maine, while exploring the freedom and healing made possible through deeper relationships with this land and its people.

On the Eastern reaches of the occupied territory now referred to as North America, the children of Koluskap call upon ancestral teachings to guide them. Revitalizing cultural practices kept from their elders, Peskotomuhkati young people lead an intergenerational process of healing through the reclamation of athasikuwi-pisun, "tattoo medicine."
