"We Passamaquoddy People have lived on the St. Crox River watershed for ten thousand years or more, since the ice retreated and the rivers flowed in the opposite direction. This film goes back to the beginnings to examine what we know of our early days here and how our lives today reflect the past. It centers on the shores of Meddybemps Lake, at an EPA Superfund cleanup site which was discovered to be the location of an ancient Passamaquoddy village. We now call that settlement N'tolonapemk, which means, 'Our Relatives' Place.' For 9000 years N'tolonapemk was a hub from which our relatives could travel throughout the St. Croix watershed. [This film] travels along the region's waterways, shores and woodlands to reveal its beauty while telling some of the story that Our Relatives' Place has revealed." 2006 DVD, by the Passamaquoddy Tribal Historic Preservation Office. Playing time 50 minutes.
