In March, at the 2014 Maine Governor’s Conference on Tourism, the Abbe Museum received the Maine Office of Tourism’s (MOT) Leadership and Growth Award. This is an annual award given out by the MOT. The Abbe was one of seven recipients who received various awards for their contributions to raise the visibility of Maine as a tourist destination and by adding to the quality of life in our state. Cinnamon and Hannah attended the conference along with 450 prominent members of Maine’s tourism industry. The conference’s theme was, “The Next 5 Years: Today’s Strategy for Tomorrow’s Success.”
The Abbe Museum’s commitment centers Indigenous people in their own histories, stories, and futures, correcting harmful representations of the past. Your support helps make this happen!
