Storyboard Text

  • The Water Famine
  • "What is your trouble?" (Gluskabe)
  • "The Monster is killing us with thirst. He   forbids us water." (Penobscot Indians)
  • "Why do you abuse our grandchildren?  You will be sorry for this treatment of our good people."
  • Gluskabe suddenly grabbed the Monster frog and broke his back.  Even then the Monster did not give up the water. 
  • Crack!
  •  So Gluskabe took an axe and cut down a large yellow birch tree, so that when it fell down, the yellow birch tree killed the Monster frog.
  •  . . . . that they all jumped into the river to enjoy the water inside  and outside. 
  •  Some of them turned into fish; some turned into frogs; some turned into turtles.
  • Now, all of the Penobscot Indians were so thirsty, some even near death . . . .
  • A few human Penobscot's survived. That is the reason they inhabit the whole length of the Penobscot River.
