From the Portland Press-Herald article: Artist illustrates legends of Wabanaki mythological hero

“I have discovered that most legends are simply told and not illustrated,” Dozay said in a press release. “I feel and have experienced that our Wabanaki tribes and cultural significance are known and considered significant among our own people, but lacking in mainstream Aboriginal teachings. …”

The exhibit, “Kluskap of the Wabanaki,” will open Nov. 5 and run through Dec. 19 at the Abbe Museum in downtown Bar Harbor . It features original paintings by native artist Arlene Christmas Dozay that illustrate various legends of the mythological hero and his adventures across the Wabanaki homeland, using landmarks that tell his story.
