Synopsis: On May 16th, 2019, The State of Maine made history by passing LD 944 "An Act to Ban Native American Mascots in All Public Schools," the first legislation of its kind in the country. For Maine’s tribal nations, the landmark legislation marked an end to a decades long struggle to educate the public on the harms of Native American mascotry.

 

We acknowledge Pennsylvania exists on the tribal lands of the Delaware, Erie, Haudenosaunee, Lenape, Munsee, Shawnee, and Susquehannock.
