From the REACH Website:

Maine-Wabanaki REACH is a cross-cultural collaborative comprised of staff from the State of Maine Office of Child and Family Services (OCFS) and Wabanaki child welfare programs, Wabanaki Health and Wellness, and the Wabanaki Program. REACH established the Maine Wabanaki-State Child Welfare Truth & Reconciliation Commission (TRC), which has until November 2015 to investigate and issue a report on Wabanaki experiences with Maine State child welfare.

The REACH website gives an overview of Wabanaki history and why that history is still relevant today. It also describes about the underlying philosophy behind the truth and reconciliation process.
