New York Times features Mitchell, UMaine Fogler Library records in reporting about Penobscot artist

In a report about the historical impact of Penobscot performer Molly Nelson, also known as Molly Spotted Elk, the New York Times cited information from the Fogler Library at the University of Maine, and spoke to John Bear Mitchell, lecturer of Wabanaki studies at UMaine. “There’s a real difference in the voice, and there’s a real difference in certain emphases that she put on certain aspects of the stories,” Mitchell told the New York Times. The article also noted that a collection of Nelson’s legends, “Katahdin: Wigwam’s Tales of the Abnaki Tribe,” was published in 2009 by UMaine.
