This here is a muskrat. Trapping primarily for meat. The fur will be sold at an auction here in Maine. This past week it almost felt like I took a step back in time during the great fur era or the times of the mountain man.  ________________________#huntinglife #eatwhatyoukill #killshot #mountainman #passamaquoddy #nativeamerican #trapping #benchmade #benchmadeknives #meateater @stevenrinella @joerogan @meateatertv #deer #deerhunting #hunting #maine #downeastmaine #sipayik #livingthewaylifeshouldbe #muskrat #homestead #mainewoods #eastportmaine

Passamaquoddy Paddle.
19th century, later carved by a European. Maine. #firstnations #paddle #canoe #collector #trapper #passamaquoddy #maine #19thcentury
A week ago today we played the oldest bar in Lowell, MA. I nerded out pretty hard over the pulley fans they had, which I later learned are the only ones left in the US that are in their original installation and still working.

I also nerded out just a bit when I typed in that city on the #nativelandapp - was previously  #wabanakiconfederacy land. The Wabanaki is made up of many tribes including #mikmaq #maliseet #passamaquoddy #abenaki #penobscot and was revived as a confederacy in 1993. They had their own currency, the #wampam which is a shell bead!

American Folklore

In the Native American Passamaquoddy mythology is the ghost witch, Skudakumooch. Skudakumooch is the spirit of a shaman who practiced dark magic and is back on the Earth for nothing but murder, haunting the village it used to take care of. They come out every night and can only be killed by fire.
The Passamaquoddy tribe is located in what is now the state of Maine and like many other Native American Tribes is small in number and trying to preserve their culture. 
This is a common makeup photo shoot but no body ever credits the makeup artist, if anyone knows who it is please tell me to give proper credit!

Sister Beauty. Canadian jewelers, @Vicki Haddon and the late Connie Hatt, create timeless pieces that reflect their Celtic and Maritime heritage. Five piece ring with ocean blue stones from @Soulsjourneyjewelry. The blue porcelain was a gift from Connie, to “see what I would do with it. Seems all it needed was a simple blue leather cord. #sisterlove #craftwomen #standrewsbythesea #Passamaquoddy #londonbluetopaz #aquamarine #porcelainblues

2018 Moose hunt. Very thankful! Great hunt. This guy showed up outside my tent 2:30 pm. First day of rifle season. Woke me up from a nap. 653 pounds. Can’t wait for next years hunt! Hoping to get one next year with the bow. 🏹🏹 was inspired to go hunting after watching @joerogan  and @stevenrinella watching the mule deer hunt. _______________________________#moosehunting #moose #maine #downeastmaine #passamaquoddy #pleasantpoint #sipayik #hunt #hunting #riflehunting #savagearms #deer #deerhunting #eatwhatyoukill #beautifulday #beautifulwayoflife #sun #sitkagear #sitkawhitetail #sitkahunting #lobstetman #lobster #meateater #antlers #bowhunting #archery #mathewsarchery #outdoors #outdoorsliving #livingthedream

“Piluwapiyit: the Powerful One.” When I was born, the elders of my tribe told my mother and grandmother that I would one day help our people. As I grew up, I never knew what that meant, but always felt as if I didn’t quite fit in with the other children around me. It wasn’t until I was a teenager that I found out why.

I was fifteen years old when I first heard the term “two-spirit,” and when I heard it, I got the impression that it wasn’t something you wanted to be identified as. Eventually I researched the term myself, since the elders I asked didn’t have the answers I was looking for. I began finding stories of Indigenous people that were not only allowed to exist “in-between,” we were celebrated and honored for being our true selves. Further research showed that many of our Two-Spirit traditions were wiped out not only in the East but across Turtle Island, and that many young two-spirits felt the same way I did. 
Lost. Disconnected. Forgotten.

Hated.

It took nearly 30 years for me to feel as if I was being my true self, and this is a journey I have just begun. If I could give my teenage self guidance, I would tell them the following: 
1. Two-Spirits were were and are wiped out on purpose. 
2. Violence against Indigenous Women was and is intentional. 
3. Women and Two-Spirits were and are the cure for the disease that is the White Supremacist Patriarchy. 
4. You are here because your Two-Spirit ancestors prayed for you to be. 
The Powerful One wears traditional Wabanaki regalia to show anyone that sees her where she is from; Ckuwaponahkik, where the Sun rises. She is filled with shavings of brown ash, the tree from which Wabanaki people were crafted. She is adorned with the traditional collar and cuffs that have been dyed the sacred Wabanaki color of protection, and her double peaked cap is a traditional headdress said to only be worn by two-spirits and shamans. Her red skirt honors all missing and murdered indigenous women, girls and two-spirits. 
For the MATRIARCHS exhibit at @esmoaorg, opening 10/18.

A year ago I was camping in Acadia National Park, and spent the afternoon napping on Sand Beach. Yes, a nap on the beach, in Maine, in October. It was glorious. I felt such peace that I didn’t worry about what I had to do, or what I was missing doing “nothing.” It was one of the best days of my life.
🏕
At the time I wasn’t thinking about the Wabanaki people (which consists of 5 tribes). I wasn’t thinking about the genocide. I wasn’t thinking of all the Native American children still being routinely taken from their homes and placed in foster care at a rate twice as high as other children. My friends Kiona (@hownottotravellikeabasicbitch) and Emily (@twodustytravelers) have recently inspired me to really start thinking of whose land this was before colonization. I was keenly aware when I was living in the southwest, but I never stopped to think about the rest of the country.
💡
I recently started researching the Wabanaki peoples, and stumbled upon a documentary currently being shown at film festivals that will be released on PBS November 5 called Dreamland. It’s “a documentary about cultural survival and stolen children: inside the first truth and reconciliation commission for Native Americans” (per the upstander project website). I am just starting to dig into the history as well as current issues concerning the indigenous people of Maine, but I hope to learn more soon and share. #wabanaki #Dreamland #Abenaki #Penobscot #Mikmaq #Passamaquoddy #Maliseet #firstnation #coastalmaine

Just to the left of the left hand spoon.  This is the home of Woodenwaycreations on the Passamaquoddy Indian Reservation. It is far from a bustling metropolis, but the quietness is a benefit all it's own! If we desire to visit another country, it's right there, just waiting!  Notice the new hang tags, it was time for an update.
