Description

Wabanaki peoples -- Maliseet, Micmac, Passamaquoddy and Penobscot -- have long told and passed down tales of Gluskap, who created the Wabanaki people and taught them to use, respect and protect the world around them.

John Bear Mitchell, associate director of the Wabanki Center at the University of Maine, a member of the Penobscot Nation, and a storyteller, tells "The Year Summer Was Stolen."

It is based on a version of the story printed in More Glooscap Stories: Legends of the Wabanaki Indians by Kay Hill (1970).
