Profile of John Banks, director of the Penobscot Nation's Department of Natural
Profile of John Banks, director of the Penobscot Nation's Department of Natural Resources. Banks, a native of Kittery, last year received an award from the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency for his commitment to protection of the Penobscot watershed. The Penobscot River drains one-quarter of the state of Maine, some 8,592 square miles, and the Penobscot Indians are inextricably bound to the river. The Penobscots believe the state and federal governments are doing a poor job overseeing the river, and feel it is up to them to act as caretakers. Details, related article.
