Abstract

An article on an "Indian Encampment" in Bar Harbor, which at its peak in 1885, was home to some 250 Wabanakis. They came for the economic opportunities furnished by an emerging resort, marketing their arts, crafts, and canoeing skills to rusticators who visited the tented encampments. None marketed with more flair than Penobscot Frank "Big Thunder" Loring, towering in height and personality. Details.

Subjects

Abenaki Indians, Mount Desert Island
