Alnobak: Wearing Our Heritage Gallery Talk

Abenaki master artist Vera Longtoe Sheehan, director of the Vermont Abenaki Artist Association and archivist/tribal secretary for the Elnu Abenaki Tribe, presents a gallery talk and introduces an exhibit of Abenaki tribal garments.

This event is part of a series of 2018 programs in the "Two Sides of the Coin: Native American & Early Colonists Cultural Clashes" project, presented by the Horatio Colony Museum with support from a New Hampshire Humanities Community Project Grant. The project is designed to broaden public awareness about the roles of Native indigenous people in our region’s history, and paint a clearer picture of war, captivity, and Native resistance.
