In Wabanaki culture, the winter season was traditionally a time of quiet introspection and, most importantly, a time to share traditional stories. In this new program series designed for children, each month will feature a different traditional story from the Wabanaki tribes and a craft activity that relates to the story. This month, join Museum Educator, George Neptune and hear stories such as Muwin and the Seven Bird Hunters, the Girl who Married a Star, and legends of the Star People—then, weave and decorate your own paper star to take home with you! Free and open to the public.
