We are delighted to announce that MITSC was recently awarded a $30,000 grant through the Sewall Foundation’s Wabanaki Communities and Tribal Governments focus area, part of the Healthy People Healthy Places program.

This funding will help us implement our “MITSC Outreach Enhancement” project to build the online resource library, produce additional MITSC Tributaries episodes (our vehicle for narrative journalism and storytelling), and promote the SEA RUN report and its recommendations, including releasing it as an audiobook.

Our goals are to raise awareness of the perilous state of Maine’s fisheries, educate policymakers about the need to consider traditional ecological knowledge in decision-making and foster tribal-state collaboration in fisheries management.
