Native American Tribes


Four Directions Development Corporation serves members of the four Native American Tribes in Maine: the Passamaquoddy Tribe (representing two reservations), the Penobscot Indian Nation, the Houlton Band of Maliseets, and the Aroostook Band of Micmacs. Most tribal members and territories are concentrated in Aroostook, Penobscot, and Washington counties, some of the state’s poorest and remote places. Already limited opportunities for home ownership, home improvement, and self-employment in these areas are further constrained by tribal land restrictions and the limited credit histories and low financial literacy.
