Water is Life - Abenaki Teach-In

Join Abenaki Arts & Education Center educators for a full-day workshop on August 4, 2023, in Warner, NH. 10 am to 4 pm.
Interactive, media-rich content will be used to expose/introduce teachers to 12,000 years of Abenaki history with 21st-century civic engagement. Participants will pursue a deeper understanding of the region’s diversity through the voices of the American Abenaki people.
From Lake Champlain to the Connecticut River Valley to the Merrimack River watershed, the life-bringing waters of N’Dakinna (Abenaki for “Our Homeland”) were our earliest highways for travel. Presenters will illustrate the Abenaki relationship to water, awareness of water as a fundamental element necessary for all life, and concern that pollution of water can change our traditional lifeways and the health of all our relations, human and animal.
