|Jennifer Pictou, Abbe Museum Curator of Education|
Ms. Pictou stepped into the role of Museum Educator at the Abbe on January 13. "The Abbe is a leading educational voice about the Wabanaki in Maine and I am pleased to be welcomed into the organization," says Ms. Pictou. "As both a museum professional and a member of the Arookstook Band of Micmacs, I look forward to expanding cultural connections for museum visitors as well as helping integrate more Native voices in public dialogue. In addition to bringing the energy and vibrancy of Maine's Natives to visitors from around the globe, I am eager to engage museum learners in multi-sensory experiences that will highlight our deep connections to the land, culture, and people."
Jennifer Pictou succeeds Raney Bench, who left the Abbe in early December to become the executive director of the Seal Cove Auto Museum.
