Song of the Drum: The Petroglyphs of Maine
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 the petroglyphs had powerful spiritual qualities, they were avoided by the uninitiated. This film presents explanations and ideas about what the images mean and how they changed as the ideas of the people who made them changed.
