Former Penobscot Chief Visits Berwick Academy

On October 11, Barry Dana, former Chief of the Penobscot Nation and activist for Penobscot causes such as language revitalization, education, and environmental protection along the Penobscot River, spent time on campus, teaching Middle School students about native trees, plants, medicinal remedies, and his tribe's culture. Fourth and sixth-graders teamed up to create an incredible shelter from bark, leaves, branches, and dirt on the trails behind campus.
