Land Acknowledgement

Maine Grains occupies land that is a homeland for the Abenaki. Indigenous people visited the waterfalls in Skowhegan to spear fish and cultivated flint corn and other crops on the fertile banks of the Kennebec River.  A crossroads to this day, Skowhegan was an important stop for Indigenous people migrating from northern hunting grounds in winter to coastal Maine in summer. We honor with gratitude the Indigenous people before and among us.
