The documentary film Fighting Indians tells the story of the successful effort to eliminate the use of Native-themed mascots and names in the public school system of Skowhegan, ME, the last district in the state to use such mascots or names. A talk-back will follow the screening, featuring Mark Cooley (the film's director), Dwayne Tomah (Passamaquoddy Language Keeper and teacher), and Maulian Dana (Tribal Ambassador for the Penobscot Language).
