FRIDAY, MAY 24, 2002

Members of two Maine tribes are wrapping up a 33-mile walk in support of their sovereignty.

About 50 members of the Passamaquoddy Tribe and the Penobscot Nation are making the journey to protest a state court decision which requires them to turn over internal documents to paper companies. They started out at the site of a 1724 raid and massacre.

The group will end up at the State House in Augusta today. There, they will hand the documents to an environmental group.
