Lesson Plan

Bicentennial Lesson Plan

Nation to Nation: Treaties and Legislation between the Wabanaki Nations and the State of Maine

Grade Level: 9-12 Content Area: Social Studies
This lesson plan asks high school students to think critically about and look closely at documentation regarding the Nation-to-Nation relationship between Maine (and the United States) and the Wabanaki peoples living within the drawn boundaries of the state over the last 400 years. This lesson asks students to participate in discussions about morality and legislative actions over time. Students will gain experience examining and responding to primary and secondary sources by looking at colonial treaties and proclamations, and legislative acts in the 20th and 21st centuries including the Maine Indian Claims Settlement Act and the 21st century legal cases that the act spurred.
