Wabanaki Winter Market

December 10, 2022 @ 9:00 am - 3:00 pm

The Wabanaki Winter Market, an annual celebration of art created by Wabanaki artists, will return with one-of-a-kind artwork for sale from 9 a.m.–3 p.m. on Saturday, Dec. 10 at the University of Maine Collins Center for the Arts.

This year marks the 28th anniversary of this signature holiday event, hosted by the UMaine Hudson Museum and the Maine Indian Basketmakers Alliance (MIBA), and supported in part by the Onion Foundation. The market will feature over 30 Passamaquoddy, Penobscot, Maliseet and Mi’kmaq artists who create brown ash and sweetgrass baskets, birchbark containers, and jewelry, among other artforms. MIBA participants include new and nationally award-winning basket weavers. 

The Wabanaki Winter Market also includes a performance of Penobscot songs by Kelly Demmons, a brown ash pounding exhibition by Mi’kmaq artist Eldon Hanning, a children’s brown ash bookmark workshop by Penobscot weaver Pam Cunningham and drumming by the Burnurwurbskek Singers. Additionally, there will be book signings for “Still they Remember Me” by authors Carol Dana, Penobscot language master, and Margo Lukens, UMaine English professor, and for “Night of the Living Rez” by Morgan Talty, UMaine assistant English professor.
