  • Date: November 9, 2023
  • Time: 10:00 AM - 11:00 AM
  • Location: Merrill Auditorium, Portland

The land and waters known as Maine have been home to Wabanaki People for over 12,000 years. Returning for its second year as a School Time Performance with some familiar artists and some new artists, this vibrant production of Wabanaki stories and music spotlights four Wabanaki artists coming from several different nations and traditions. Musician Tania Morey (Tobique) sings of the Wolastoq; Jennifer Pictou (Mi’kmaq) regales with spirit stories told in the company of a large puppet; Dwayne Tomah (Passamaquoddy) shares stories that showcase his native language, Passamaquoddy; and artist and author Chris Newell (Passamaquoddy) intersperses each with music and narration.
