Outdoor Education and Allyship with Abenakis (Video)

Outdoor education is placed-based work that relies on land-based knowledge which often borrows from Native American survival and cultural craft skills. This type of work and connection to the land may lead educators to wonder how they can be good allies for the American Abenaki people. Panelists from several Abenaki cultural organizations will discuss their organizations and allyship needs. Join Vera Longtoe Sheehan, Sherry Gould, Chan Crawford, and Rich Holschuh for this rich discussion, including opportunities for your questions. Hosted by the Abenaki Arts & Education Center and Vermont Abenaki Artists Association, with our partners at the Atowi Project, Abenaki Trails Project, and Alnobaiwi.
