As I watched James and Bryan's flight up the river, Mt. Kineo and Indian Island, I followed along with GoogleEarth. With that I could see the whole geographic orientation and more fully understand the context of the river trip. It was a real unique perspective. I recommend it for a great learning experience.
I did the same thing, Bob! It was a terrific experience!
I really appreciate how comprehensive the film is, how you use aerial photography, art work, maps, archaeology, and oral tradition to tell the story of the Penobscot, and especially how it illustrates the larger range of Penobscot territory well beyond Indian Island. You basically re-map the landscape from a Penobscot perspective. Question: are there issues or topics that you didn't cover, but that you want to cover, maybe in future films?

lI been typing away to all your questions and just noticed my answers only went to the panelists. Sorry, I’ll try to copy & paste….
Thank you, everyone, for this wonderful film and great discussion.
the paddle was made by Joe Dana who is a modern Penobscot birchbark canoe maker and very talented wood carver
Thanks so much. Loved the introduction to Joseph Attean. Any comments on Joseph’s feelings about the contributions/legacy of the Jesuits or Sisters of Mercy?

Is there a glossary of Wabanaki place names in Maine? I live in Maine, have been to the tribal museum on Indian Island.From Jennifer Neptune to All Panelists: 08:14 PMHi Jane, there is a map that the Penobscot Nation Cultural Department has done with place names and with the story of the moose. It is avail
