Welcome to the Abenaki Arts & Education Center!

We created the Abenaki Arts & Education Center (AAEC) because Abenaki history and culture are not included in the regional curriculum and it is difficult for teachers to find Abenaki educators and authentic curriculum resources. The Abenaki Arts & Education Center is an educational institution of the future. It has no walls and it exists through an online presence (website, YouTube channel, and Facebook page). In addition to the free resources listed on this website, we also offer many educational programs, we also offer live and virtual programs centered around Abenaki culture and cultural competency, diversity, equity, inclusion, and accessibility (DEIA) topics, and we have a YouTube channel with videos. You may navigate the website via the pull-down menu above, using the search box, or by clicking any of the tags or keywords on the left.

Our mission is to support American Abenaki sovereignty through education and sharing Abenaki history and cultural resources with people of all ages so Abenaki living culture can be taught across N’Dakinna (our homeland).

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.

In addition to the free resources listed on this website, we also offer many educational programs, we also offer live and virtual programs centered around Abenaki culture and cultural competency, diversity, equity, inclusion, and accessibility (DEIA) topics, and we have a YouTube channel with videos.
