People - Teresa Sappier, Singer

Teresa Sappier, a Penobscot Indian originally from Indian Island, sings and has recorded many songs passed down by here mother, Madeline Sappier. Teresa and her sister Dolores were the primary (and sometimes only) singers for the usually annual Penobscot Indian pageants from 1965-1972. Though she stopped performing at these pageants, Teresa took pride in knowing the Penobscot songs and hoped that by passing along these songs, she could help keep Penobscot culture alive.
