The AWWF honors and respects Wabanaki people and recognizes that the Allagash is their ancestral homeland. The Foundation has participated in First Light Learning Journey; and now explores ways to collaborate with Wabanaki Tribes to understand Wabanaki culture and history on the Allagash, encourage Wabanaki use of the Allagash, especially by its youth; and to tell the story of Wabanaki homeland to Allagash visitors, and to students in the Youth on the Allagash initiative. Everyone who visits the Allagash should leave it better informed about Wabanaki ancestral and contemporary homelands, history, and culture.
OUR MISSION IS to enhance the wilderness character of the Allagash Wilderness Waterway, protect its environment, and preserve and foster knowledge and understanding of its natural, historic and cultural values. In close collaboration with the Maine Bureau of Parks and Lands, we serve as the Friends of the Allagash.- Allagash Wilderness Waterway Foundation
