Just like everything else, the annual Wabanaki Winter Market is going virtual this year.

Starting at 11 AM, check out this virtual event on the Hudson Museum's YouTube page and will be filled with demonstrations, storytelling, and performances happening this Saturday, December 12th.

  • Barry Dana of the Penobscot who is a birchbark artist
  • Gabriel Frey of the Passamaquoddy who is a basketmaker
  • Jennifer Neptune of the Penobscot who is a basketmaker and beadworker

  • Eldon Hanning of the Micmac who is a basketmaker
  • Carol Dana of the Penobscot who is a storyteller
