The film, about Native Americans in Maine, was made in 2004. The video, in which persons from the Penobscot, Passamaquoddy, Micmac and Maliseet tribes talk about their negative experiences of schooling and government and their strong family connections, should spark discussion.

The video and discussion is free and open to all. For more information, contact Christine Holden, 783-1685.
