Brady Hawkins

The impetus for the creation of this memorial was the desire of Northern Maine Community College student – Brady Hawkins. For his final project, Hawkins worked with Instructor Dean Duplessis to create a veteran memorial wall for the Aroostook Band of Micmacs. Using NMCC Precision Machining Technology, Hawkins created a collection of life-sized blue anodized metal eagle feathers that each bears an engraved name of a respected Micmac veteran.

Hawkins calls the project: “Kepmite’Lmanej Sma’Knisk,” which translates to “Let us honor the soldiers.”

After completing the project, Hawkins gifted the feathers to the tribe’s new community center, which now serves as their permanent home.
