FREE Event: Wearing Our History - Abenaki Artists Panel Discussion


Date & Time: 
Nov 8 2017 - 7:00pm - 9:00pm

FREE EVENT:

On
Wednesday, November 8, at 7 pm, Vermont Abenaki Artists Association Director Vera
Longtoe Sheehan will moderate a panel discussion in Brattleboro at Brooks Memorial Library
with Sagamo (Chief) Roger Longtoe Sheehan of the
Elnu Abenaki Tribe and Grandmother Willow Greene. The panelists will
discuss the meaning that contemporary Abenaki artists and tribal members
assign to the designs and materials used in their garments,
accessories, and regalia in their own lives and as expressions of
community and tribal identity.

libraries in a series of panel discussions titled “Wearing Our
Heritage,” and this event has been organized
by the Vermont Abenaki Artists Association in partnership with Lake
Champlain Maritime Museum, funded in part by a grant from the Vermont
Humanities Council.
