Abenaki Heritage Weekend at the Lake Champlain Maritime Museum June 22-23, 2019 Vergennes, Vermont
A family friendly event at the water front on the beautiful Lake Champlain Maritime Museum grounds with the Abenaki Tribes and Bands of so-called Vermont. There is an entrance fee but well worth the investment!! Moccasin Tracks has been honored to be able to record this event previous years and here are links to preview what we filmed. Thank-you to everyone who was interviewed. Enjoy the event.
Video filmed by Moccasin Tracks at the Lake Champlain Maritime Museum with Vermont Abenaki Artists Association June 23, 2018. We interview with Chief Roger Longtoe Sheehan at the “Roost” and also with friend of the Abenaki, Snapper where they gift us with a Living History exhibit. Making our way thru the grounds we visit with Brian Chenevert and his son Nathan after recording the Nulhegan Drum lead by Chief Don Stevens. Aaron Wood is demonstrating the preparation of ash splints for basket making and Kerry R. Wood shows us her beautiful baskets. Artist, Amy Hook Therrien talks about the inspiration for her artwork and Diane Stevens shows us her photography. Jeanne Morningstar Kent talks with us about the importance of knowing your roots and how that knowing her genealogy has helped her to focus on art based on Wabanaki designs. She is a member of the Nulhegan Band of Coosuk Abenaki Nation. Linda Longtoe Sheehan shows her wampum and a new necklace woven on the bias. Thank-you to all.
