Bangor Daily News spotlights the new 4-episode podcast from Salt: Sovereign 

Decades after a settlement act in Maine gave native peoples the means to potentially buy land but took away many rights, a new Maine-made podcast told through interviews with Wabanaki tribal leaders explains the circumstances behind a long push for self-governance, which may finally be realized in 2022.

“Sovereign,” a four-episode podcast, has been released as state legislators prepare to revisit a bill that could restore self-governance to the tribes of the Wabanaki Confederacy.

On December 7, 2021, reporter Nick Schroeder explored the important role Salt Institute for Documentary Studies's four episode Sovereign podcast plays in bringing to light the circumstances that led to Maine's tribal leaders to sign over many of their rights in a settlement act and the current fight to get back tribal self-governance.
