The VAAA Storytelling Project will be hosting a Memory Booth at various community events around N’Dakinna (our homeland). The Memory Booth is a place where Abenaki people can create artwork and tell their stories to promote health and wellness.
This year, we are processing our thoughts and feelings about the COVID-19 pandemic, vaccines, disparities, and access.
Your artwork and stories will inform the creation of new digital content and a traveling exhibit that promotes Abenaki voices about this crucial topic.
Upcoming Memory Booth Locations
