Hello, Chris,

One of the four communities featured in "Homeland: Four Portraits of
Native Action" is the Penobscot Nation in Maine.

"Homeland" was selected by the ALA Video Round Table as a Notable DVD
for Adults. And YALSA also featured the film on its Selected Videos and
DVD for Young Adults for 2007.

Barry Dana, the former chief of the Penobscot Nation in Maine, is
battling state government and the paper companies that have left his
people unable to fish or swim in or harvest medicinal plants from the
river on which they've depended for 10,000 years.

Call if you have any questions.

Subject: [Videolib] videos on CT indian tribes

Hi y'all,

Yet another question for the collective brain...

Do you happen to have or know of video catalogs that might include films
on indigenous populations, especially native Connecticut indian tribes?
A new faculty member in Political Science is looking for films done on
current (not historical) social conditions, political issues, etc. for
her class.

I've already pointed the library liaison to the VISIONMAKER and NATIVE
NETWORKS websites, but their titles deal with mostly midwest and west,
and southwest tribes. Before I dig any deeper does anyone off hand know
any video resources on tribes indigenous to New England?

Muchas gracias!

VIDEOLIB is intended to encourage the broad and lively discussion of
issues relating to the selection, evaluation, acquisition,bibliographic
control, preservation, and use of current and evolving video formats in
libraries and related institutions. It is hoped that the list will serve
as an effective working tool for video librarians, as well as a channel
of communication between libraries,educational institutions, and video
producers and distributors.
