Due to the overwhelmingly positive response to the School-Time Performance of Wabanaki Stories, a second performance has been added at Noon.
 
The land and waters known as Maine have been home to Wabanaki peoples for over 12,000 years. This vibrant exploration of Wabanaki histories and cultures spotlights three Wabanaki storytellers coming from three different nations and three different storytelling traditions. Jennifer Pictou (Mi’kmaq) regales with spirit stories told in the company of large puppets; Dwayne Tomah (Passamaquoddy), the youngest fluent speaker of Passamaquoddy, shares stories that showcase his native language; and John Bear Mitchell (Penobscot) captures the imagination with tales of Espun, a trickster.
