Mount Desert Island calls to many artists. Wabanaki people are part of this artistic tradition, dating back thousands of years on this island. During the Rusticator era (the 1840s to 1920s), the Wabanaki people helped make Bar Harbor and the island so attractive to visitors – making art and selling it to the visitors ensure cultural survival for many art forms.
