This Letter
was inspired by
a FB friend’s
FB posts re:

a town
with a school
with a Native

A town
with a chamber
of commerce whose
leadership set up

“The First Annual
Hunt for the Indian!”
treasure hunt

aiming to encourage
shoppers to Shop Local
during the holidays.

A town
where there was a
massacre of Natives.

A town
where the government
paid bounties for Native
captives, or scalps:

Or child.

SPECIAL THANKS to Mr. Martin Neptune, Penobscot Elder, for his permission to share his eloquent and powerful words with all who read this play.
