Protecting the Sacred
Who We Are
We are a multi-generational group of Indigenous leaders, community organizers, culture and language-keepers, educators and scholars, scientists, activists, artists, social services providers, attorneys, judges, and traditional spiritual elders.
We come from all environments including reservations, urban, and rural settings. We offer diverse perspectives, experiences, and skills. Our core values include being caretakers of our relationship with the land, caring for our elders and youth, as well as preserving our rich cultural traditions.

The Penobscot: Ancestral River, Contested Territory
A Sunlight Media Collective Production
These films cover the history of ongoing territorial taking from the Penobscot Nation by the state of Maine. They tell the urgent story of an enduring struggle for justice and cultural survival in the face
of an astonishingly open abuse of state power.
