Nulhegan Abenaki Gathering Returns to Mount Norris!
Our 2023 Nulhegan Abenaki Gathering will once again be held at Mount Norris Scout Reservation in Eden, VT. With its huge dining hall, this is the perfect venue for the Gathering, since it will take place rain or shine!
The Gathering will take place on August 26th & 27th from 10:00 am to 5:00 pm. It will open for Nulhegan Citizens only on August 25th, commencing at 10:00 am.
Throughout the weekend there will singing, storytelling, drumming, and dancing along with other activities to be enjoyed by adults and children. For example, last year people had the opportunity to learn how to pound ash. There was also a lesson given on making a bustle for regalia.
Vendors of authentic native crafts will be set up throughout the weekend. Please note that you should bring cash, because many of the vendors have no way to process credit card payments. Though we won’t know who all of our vendors will be until that weekend, you may find all sorts of great hand-made and hand-crafted items at the Gathering. Many of our citizens are great artists and you may find items such as hand-woven baskets, drums, rattles, jewelry, bags, pouches, paintings, professional photographic prints, children’s books, and much more. Last year, we even had one of our youngest citizens selling some marvelous customized tea blends!
Please note that this is never a powwow – it is a Gathering of friends and family for the Nulhegan Abenaki Tribe. Wearing regalia is optional. The public is always welcome to participate in all of the activities, as well as the meal, and is invited to attend both Saturday and Sunday.
