The Cultural Connections in the Park series occurs every Wednesday from June through August and on select dates in September.
The Burnurwurbskek Singers are a men’s drum group from the Penobscot Nation at Indian Island, Maine. This group has been performing traditional Wabanaki songs for audiences across Maine and other states for many years. This performance on top of Wapuwoc, or the “white mountain of the first light,” is a cultural demonstration that will captivate audience members of all ages.
All of these programs are sponsored by Dawnland, LLC, are offered in partnership with Acadia National Park, and are free and open to the public. In 2015, 3,191 visitors attended 12 different Cultural Connections in the Park programs, making it our most successful year to date!
