“Are there really Native Americans living in
This is one of the most frequently asked questions from our visitors.
Of the more than five million Native people living in the U.S., approximately 10,000 call Maine home. Most are Wabanaki—a confederacy of Nations that today consists of the four federally recognized tribes in Maine: Penobscot, Passamaquoddy, Micmac, and Maliseet. The Wabanaki also includes several bands of the Abenaki tribe, located primarily in New Hampshire, Vermont, and Quebec.
Education changes everything. And at the Abbe Museum, in Bar Harbor, Maine, education is at the center of what we do—every single day. Our 30,000 guests experience a different kind of engagement that includes aesthetic, intellectual, emotional, and spiritual exploration and meaning-making.
They leave the Museum knowing that Native American culture is thriving in Maine.
Your support this spring will help change lives by providing cultural experiences that inspire new learning about the Wabanaki Nations.
For as little as $30, you can directly impact our ability to offer life-changing experiences!
From all of us at the Abbe Museum, thank you for believing in what we do!
