Abstract

Article reporting that Poolaw's Tepee, a landmark of the Penobscot Reservation on Indian Island for half a century, has just reopened to the public under the new name "Watahwaso's Tepee." Erected in 1947 by Lucy Nicolar Poolaw ("Princess Watahwaso") and her husband Bruce Poolaw, the tepee quickly became a tourist attraction. Charles Shay, Lucy's nephew, decided to restore the tepee with a mural featuring his ancestors.
