Kuwesuwi Monihq Reclamation Celebration

On June 21st the Passamaquoddy community held a Reclamation Celebration to commemorate the return of Kuwesuwi Monihq (Pine Island) to the tribe. Kuwesuwi Monihq is the largest island in Kci Monosakom or Big Lake, and holds great historic and cultural significance for the Passamaquoddy people. The land was taken from the tribe in 1820 and through an act of collaboration, solidarity, and reparation was finally returned in 2021. The celebration began in Muwin Park at Peter Dana Point and then participants traveled by boat to the island itself where the ceremony concluded.
