About Rematriate

Rematriation is the nurturing of our innate power and gifts. 
Rematriation supports the expression of our power from within and is reciprocal in its care of our relatives, human and more-than-humans. In this matriarchal way of belonging, humans are not the masters, merely relatives and caretakers. 
The land and its kin have rights in an cyclical evolution grounded in our respective cosmovisions/creation stories and the struggles of our ancestors. In this framework of care and reciprocity, power then becomes transformative.

Who We Are

Illustration
  • Eastern Woodlands Rematriation (EWR) is a grassroots collective led entirely by indigenous two-spirits, indigequeer, womxn and tribal families of what is now known as “New England”. 
    We collectively comprise peoples and families of Maliseet, Mi'kmaq, Passamaquoddy, Penobscot, Nipmuc, Massachusset, Wampanoag, Narragansett, and Mohegan nations, and include urban, mobil, displaced natives and indigneous peoples in diaspora. 
    We are youth, elders, two spirits, caregivers, farmers, artists, herbalists, pipe carriers and organizers.

What We Do

EWR operates as a mutual support network for tribal food producers, farmers, medicine keepers, fisher folk, and hunters - all based within our respective tribal homelands and with Indigenous people in diaspora. 
Our initiatives provide capacity building, infrastructure, technical support, and formation spaces for coordinated political organizing which enhances and safekeeps sacred sites and land use, community gardens, home gardens, food forests, community apothecaries, small-scale fishing and planting fields. 
Our practice is rooted in the exchange of ancestral knowledge, foods and medicines, and political education among ally communities.

Space To Heal And Grow

Nowadays, rapid growth can make cities extremely unsuitable for living. We believe that nature can help cities cope with the problems they may face.

Where We Work

Over the past few years, we have engaged a growing number of isolated Indigenous food producers and initiatives across the northeast into a coordinated, strategic approach to transform our food systems and wellbeing through collective work.

We have learned that isolated food sovereignty projects are unsustainable. Instead, we need collective power and mutual support to dismantle the harms of colonialism - in effort to sustain our local foodways and the health and wellbeing of our homelands.

Brigade Work

Mutual support brigades serve as entry points into a growing network of rural and urban communities, reservation and non-reservation sites, for sharing of technical and political information and project needs. These brigades are seeded primarily in traditional territories of and in collaboration with families of the Penobscot, Mi’kmaq, Nipmuc, and Wampanoag peoples.
