The Penobscot nation have long fought to retain their territory and their inherent, treaty-reserved sustenance fishing rights for future generations. The Penobscot people's traditional, centuries-long stewardship to ensure a healthy ecosystem for all of Maine. This is the story of a struggle for justice and cultural survival in the face of astonishingly open abuse of state power.
