Maine Native Americans Come Together to Sell Baskets and Share Culture


ORONO- Several folks were out doing their Christmas shopping today, but for an alternative to the malls and stores, some people chose to purchase their gifts from Maine natives.
For 18 years now, four native american tribes from around the state have gathered at the Hudson Museum on the University of Maine campus to sell their products and spread culture.
Over 40 artists from Passamaquoddy, Micmac, Maliseet, and Penobscot tribes shared their music, dance, and crafts with the public.

Some products for sale included jewelry and carvings...but the hot item: baskets...and for these families, it's a knowledge that is passed down from generation to generation
Molly Neptune Parker has been making them for over 65 years, and it's a skill that she says is shared by the whole family.
