Abnaki: The Native People of Maine
(1982, 28 min.) US
Producer/director: Jay Kent for Maine Tribal Governors, Inc.
The Penobscot, Passamaquoddy, and Maliseet reflect on the past
and their identities as indian people today. Issues surrounding
the land claims suit of the Penobscott, Passamaquoddy, and Mailiseet
tribes of Maine, settled out of court in 1980, are explored. The
film documents many aspects of contemporary Native life on the
east coast in the United States.
