Glooscap turning man into a cedar tree. Scraping on birchbark by Tomah Joseph 1884

Join us for a special evening with traditional Wabanaki storyteller Anne Jennison, who will introduce us to Gluskabe, the central figure of an entire body of stories at the heart of the Wabanaki cultures of the Northeast. Gluskabe is neither Creator nor human; rather, he is somewhere in between. He has magical powers, stands as tall as the white pine trees, and is a friend to the Alnobak (human beings). Layered with embedded meanings, Gluskabe stories reveal the core spiritual and ethical beliefs of the Wabanaki peoples and teach traditional Wabanaki understandings about how to live in harmony with Mother Earth – and what can happen when that balance is disrupted.

7 to 8 p.m. via Zoom. To get the login details, please register here.

Closed captioning will be available. For more information, contact Susie Spikol.

Co-sponsored by the Harris Center for Conservation Education, the Hancock Town Library, and New Hampshire Humanities to Go.
