Welcome to Freedom, Maine
To two of our postings on two of our blogs about our people
The Moiigans (Maïngan – Yáw – Wolf-People).
This first posting is a copy of our original map of what the village of Uncasvillage looked like before first contact.
The Land of Sachem Uncas in the 1600’s
The original is kept under lock because it is the only one in existence and really old!
A Google site for writing about our people.
Back in the 1940’s and 1950’s I remember traveling throughout the New England/New York areas with my elders, most of the cold weather gatherings, powwows and Paw-paus were held in Grange halls like your Dirigo Grange in Maine.
Up until the late 1980’s (Government Controlled Casino Indians), all Native American Tribes were recognized as “Real Live People” throughout the area!
I know that we travels all over your state.
However, I am not sure if we ever stopped at your Grange Hall?
If not it was our loss.
We were members of what we left of the Maïngan (13 Families), and traveled with elders from other tribes throughout the New England/New York area.
