LOVELL – The Hobbs Library is honored to welcome Carol Dana, cultural historian of the Penobscot Nation, as the next speaker in the Hobbs Library Speaker Series. Join us on Zoom on Thursday, March 17 at 7 p.m. as Dana presents “Atlohkewe: Tell Me a Story,” which will draw on a collection of 189 Penobscot stories traditionally told in the wintertime about the culture hero, Gluscabe. Dana will tell some of the stories and discuss their significance.
Dana currently works as language resource person for the Cultural and Historic Preservation Department for the Penobscot Nation. She teaches at the Penobscot Nation Daycare Center, Boys and Girls Club, and with the elders in the community. At the Algonquian Language Conference in 2010, Dana was presented with a Lifetime Achievement Award for her dedication to the Penobscot Language. This special presentation has been made possible by a grant from the Maine Humanities Council.
