Your series on the Passamaquoddy is a piece of wonderful writing that brings to light just one of the tragic histories of the First People of the land we immigrants call America (“Unsettled: Triumph and tragedy in Maine’s Indian country”).

It should be widely read, especially in the schools, where so little is taught about how we white folks have not only acquired “our” present homes but what we did to the peoples who took care of this land for centuries before we arrived here.

Thank you, Colin Woodard, for your excellent journalism (in the most honored tradition of that term), and thank you, editors of the Portland Press Herald, for having the wisdom to print this excellent series.
