"Quest for Qonasqamkuk"

This map shows the Traditional Ancestral Homeland Territory of the Passamaquoddy Tribe.   The Passamaquoddy have lived in harmony with the mother earth and have occupied this watershed region for at least the past 600+ generations (12,000+ years).  In contrast, the European newcomer governments (USA and Canada) have only been in this region for a mere 20 generations.  This new USA-Canada boundary line was imposed on the Passamaquoddy by the newcomer governments.  Notice how the boundary line cuts right through the heart of our  Ancestral Homeland.  This new boundary was created less than 200 years ago and has created serious problems for the Passamaquoddy people.  The newcomers violate treaties with Passamaquoddy, they take our land, pollute the waters, deplete our food source, and make laws (in violation of treaties) that restrict our hunting, fishing, travel and trade within our homeland.   Our way of life is endangered.


"The Protection and sanctity of our land is closely linked to the Preservation of our Aboriginal Existence"  Vera J. Francis

When Great Britain and the United States established a boundary between Maine and New Brunswick in 1842, the Passamaquoddy People were not consulted. The result, the separation of Passamaquoddy families and the seizure of traditional Passamaquoddy territory.

Our people more than a century later still carry on the fight for our ancestral Passamaquoddy homelands.

In order to restore and retain a physical & spiritual connection to our buried ancestors and sacred land, the commercial profiteering, the blatant degradation, and the exploitation of sacred land must cease. In recognizing that a spiritual equilibrium can only be attained with the help of others, the Passamaquoddy people earnestly request support. We stress that to do anything less perpetuates genocide.

We seek the immediate return of our land at Qonasqamkuk and the acknowledgment that our aboriginal right to this land has never been relinquished by treaty, lost by war, or sold in any transaction.
