One of the most heroic figures in Maine history is Father Sebastian Rale S.J., who lived among the Abenaki people for thirty years. In his riveting story, we will travel back to the Maine wilderness of the 1700’s and learn of the enduring friendship between Father Rale and the Abenakis. In the aftermath of the bloody war between British colonists and the indigenous people of Massachusetts, the conflict moved north. British aggression into native lands fueled fierce battles. Father Rale became a target of the British but refused to flee to Quebec.
