In Maine, the Native Americans began carving images into stone ledges beginning about 3,000 years ago. These petroglyphs, probably the work of shamans, were used as metaphors of the spirit quest or to help memorize chants. Because they had powerful spiritual qualities, they were avoided by the uninitiated. This film shows many examples and presents explanations about what the images mean and how they changed as the people who made them changed. It took more than 10 years to produce this unique documentary, which features Passamaquoddy songs and music. Without the support and participation of members of the Passamaquoddy Tribe, this film would not have been possible. An Acadia Productions DVD, 47 minutes.
