The University of Maine has already entered into a formal Memorandum of Understanding with the Penobscot Nation to manage donations of original documents about Penobscot culture and history (MOU), but has not yet reached similar agreements with Maine's other three Wabanaki tirbes, including the Passamaquoddy Tribe (Indian Township and Pleasant Point), the Houlton Band of Maliseets, and the Aroostook Band of Micmacs. It is the intent that Special Collections will hold and mangage the Robert H. White Collection in the spirit of the MOU with respect to all four of the Wabanaki tribes in the State of Maine, both recognizing the importance of indigenous input and decisions about their language, history, culture, and tribal government documents and extending these cooperative working relationships and understandings based on mutual trust and respect.
