In conjunction with American Indian month, the Maine Chapter of Episcopal Peace Fellowship and St. Peter’s Church will present the second annual film series documentary film Saturday, Nov. 20 at 2:30 p.m. at St. Peter’s, 11 White St.

“Invisible” tells the story of the Wabanaki of Maine and their treatment by others. The documentary features stories about faith, peacemaking and reconciliation and includes eyewitness stories and photos. It was produced in 2005 by the Episcopal Diocese of Maine & Acadia Film Video.

The film posits that Native American people of Maine are invisible to most whites and that many who do know of the Indians’ presence are ignorant of both their history and their present circumstances. “Invisible” examines some of the history of the relations between the white and Indian communities in Maine. Through individual voices, it looks at underlying reasons for the racism so deeply imbedded in white American culture and how that racism continues to shape Native American reality today.

A discussion will follow the screening, and refreshments will be provided. All are welcome to attend and view this enlightening and moving film. The next day, St. Peter’s will hold an Indian smudging ceremony as part of its regular worship service at 10:30 a.m.
