Start of Fifth Annual Maine Peace Walk


Eric Herter – TRANSCEND Media Service

On October 11th, about twenty Peace Walkers, ages ranging from ten to seventy-nine, gathered at the Indian Island, Maine, home of the Penobscot Nation, for inspirational talks from Sherri Mitchell, a tribal lawyer, activist and writer, and from Tribal Chief Francis. The following morning they started their two-week trek to the southern border of Maine hundreds of miles to the south, a trip that will take them to many Maine communities, home-stays and community gatherings. They describe here why they feel impelled to spend a fortnight on the road speaking out for peace, and for the defense of Mother Earth.
