Shopping for Native American Art and Local Products

The Wabanaki, or People of the Dawnland, have incorporated Maine’s natural resources into their works of art for millennia. Whether as a gift or to add beauty to your home, finding that perfect ash basket or incredible piece of beadwork is a wonderful way to share your love of Maine.

You can find Native American artwork to purchase across the state at galleries and museums like Home & Away in Kennebunkport, which features works from renowned basketweaver Jeremy Frey. The Center for Maine Craft in West Gardiner and Maine Craft Portland are both excellent resources for indigenous Maine products, as well.
