Many of us were taught in school that Indigenous Americans lived land-based lives, or at most navigated inland waterways. In reality, numerous Indigenous cultures were heavily connected to the maritime world, and depended on the ocean for food, materials, and trade opportunities. In this episode we take a look at the Wabanaki sailors that thrived on colonial America and Canada’s north Atlantic coasts, and we learn about the Wabanaki navies that resisted Britain’s imperial intentions.
