> The Penobscot: Ancestral River, Contested Territory,
>  
> In 2012, the state of Maine declared that the Penobscot Indian reservation, which includes more than 200 islands in the Penobscot River, does not include any portion of the water. In  Penobscot Nation v Mills, the tribe argues that this amounts to territorial theft by the state. The case will be heard on October 14th. Spanning from the 1700's to the present-day legal battle, this documentary illustrates the Penobscots' long environmental stewardship and their fight to retain their territory and treaty-reserved, sustenance fishing rights for future generations. Featuring first-person accounts, the film tells the urgent, inspiring story of a struggle for justice and cultural survival in the face of an astonishingly open abuse of state power.
>  The hearing for Penobscot Nation v Mills will be on Wednesday, October 14th, in US District Court in Portland, 9am.
