Gathering at Fresh Water Farms, on a section of Portland Trails looking east toward the Presumpscot River, the Friends will unveil the site for a memorial to Chief Polin. The Wabanaki Sagamore led the first documented dam protest in New England during the mid-1700s, advocating for fish passage to protect a vital food source for his people of the “dawn-land.”
