All About the Abenaki

This week we have been been learning all about the Abenaki Native Americans in the past and the present. We discussed how they used to get food, how they would create shelter, forms of transportation, and clothes, and we talked about their relationship with the Europeans.

On Thursday, we had the privilege to see an Abenaki youth group perform on the drums. We had the opportunity to ask the coordinator of this youth group, Brenda, some of our questions.

Today the Rigatonis applied all of our new knowledge and started to create an Abenaki village.

Next week we will talk about the Native Americans that belong to the Southeast region of the United States! It will be interesting to compare and contrast!
