This image shows Wabanaki guides with birch bark canoes and guns ready to guide sport hunters and sightseers at the Bar Harbor shore, 1881.
Many Wabanaki men at the Bar Harbor encampments made themselves available as guides to take summer people in canoes for sightseeing, fishing, or hunting. This was one of the many ways that the Wabenaki earned their annual income to support their families.
