Birchbark canoe donation


The Abbe Museum is excited to announce that this wonderful birchbark canoe has been donated to the museum. Marcy MacKinnon (left, with her mother Marcia MacKinnon) of Bar Harbor generously donated the traditional-style Abenaki canoe crafted by Abenaki artist Aaron York in 2004. The 16-foot canoe is now on display at the Abbe Museum at Sieur de Monts Spring. Stop by anytime to visit it, and other artifacts. Photo by Hannah Whalen.
