A saga chronicling 50 years of triumph and tragedy, “Unsettled” first appeared as a newspaper series on the front page of the Portland Press Herald and Maine Sunday Telegram in the summer of 2014. The story – which unfolded for 29 straight days and concluded with an epilogue a week later – traces the recent history of Maine’s Passamaquoddy people and explains how past events continue to affect their lives today. Reporter Colin Woodard spent more than a year researching “Unsettled,” logging thousands of miles and more than 250 hours of interviews with 70 sources, including past governors of Maine and the reservations. The result is a story that shocked many in Maine.
