Welcome to the Abenaki Arts & Education Center!
Our mission is to share Abenaki history and culture resources with people of all ages so Abenaki living culture can be taught throughout across N’Dakinna (our homeland). We do this by developing Abenaki curriculum materials, resources, and programs that are often developed and presented in partnership with our Sister organization, the Vermont Abenaki Artists Association. Our vision is a future when Abenaki culture will be integrated into all academic content areas and our virtual exhibitions and interpretive materials will be available regionally and globally.
Diversity, equity, and inclusion are important principles for us. Therefore, we create and publish Open Education Resources (OER) that are free to the public. We also offer live and virtual programs centered around Abenaki culture, as well as cultural competency, diversity, equity, and inclusion , and accessibility (DEIA) topics.
We were conceived as an educational institution of the future that has no walls and exists through an online presence (website, YouTube channel, and Facebook page).
