Dugout Canoe Program with Dan Shears

Dan Shears, Material Culture Advisor for the Nulhegan Abenaki Nation, along with tribe members Bill Gould and Darryl Peasley, will demonstrate the traditional techniques used in the construction of a dugout canoe.  Rivers were the Abenaki highways used for trade, visiting relatives, and for places to grow food.  As such, the ability to build and maintain canoes was an important part of the lives of the Abenaki.
