Abenaki Heritage Weekend (2019)
June 22, 2019 - June 23, 2019
Join the Native American community at the Abenaki Heritage Weekend on June 22nd from 10 am to 5 pm and June 23rd from 10:30 am to 4:30 pm. Members of the Elnu Abenaki Tribe, the Nulhegan Band of the Coosuk and Koasek Traditional Band of the Koas Abenaki Nation, Missisquoi Abenaki Tribe, and the Vermont Abenaki Artists Association work with Museum staff to plan and present the event. The Native people at this event are experts in the living indigenous arts and traditions which they come together to share with one another and with visitors. They have inherited, researched, reconstructed, or apprenticed to learn the techniques with which they create outstanding bead work, quill work, basketry, pottery, woodworking and other items for personal use or for sale. Tribal members will also share songs, drumming, dancing, games, food preparation, and other life skills. Abenaki Heritage Weekend also includes opportunities to share cultural heritage through indoor presentations and a gallery talk with the curators and artists.
