Guest Speaker: This week’s guest speaker was Barbara Kates. Barbara Kates is a non-Native woman from Bangor and has a small consulting business. She volunteers with Maine-Wabanaki REACH.  She became involved with REACH after decades of developing child welfare related programs here in Maine.  For the past six years she was a community organizer for REACH and recently has shifted to volunteer work developing and facilitating programs. 
Maine-Wabanaki REACH is a cross cultural organization of Wabanaki and Maine people.  Wabanaki are the indigenous people of Maine and include the Penobscot, Passamaquoddy, Maliseet, and Micmac tribes and smaller groups of Native people.  REACH was created to develop the Maine Wabanaki State Child Welfare Truth and Reconciliation Commission which ran from 2012to 2015. Now REACH continues to work on the recommendations of that commission to support Wabanaki self-determination through truth, healing, and change.
