Presiding Officers thank Wabanaki Chiefs following moving State of the Tribes Address

I want to thank Chief Sabattis, Chief Newell, Chief Francis, Chief Peter Paul and Chief Nicholas for graciously accepting the invitation to address a Joint Convention of the Maine Legislature and for sharing their powerful words with us today. The way we forge a stronger, more resilient relationship between our governments starts with listening, and that is something the state has certainly not done enough of throughout our 200-year history.
