I feel like we don't need Past Perfect to show that residents of Maine were a part of some culture... in other words, they didn't stop being part of that culture, right? so Past simple should do it.

A, C and E use past simple
C is too wordy
E 'were a people, which' is incorrect... "which" refers to things only

my choice is A

A because 'in that time' is mentioned. B would have been correct if 'in that time' were not used. Others are too wordy.

Uh uh. I know what you're thinking. "Is the answer A, B, C, D or E?" Well to tell you the truth in all this excitement I kinda lost track myself. But you've gotta ask yourself one question: "Do I feel lucky?" Well, do ya, punk?

Out of A, C and E, my choice is A for being concise and simple.
