Understanding Place: Wabanaki Textiles and Fiber Art

Stone Valley Arts 145 E Main St, Poultney, VT, United States

Understanding Place: Wabanaki Textiles and Fiber Art provides the audience the opportunity to examine samples of twined weaving and learn how it connects to the land and Abenaki history. The lecture will cover Vera’s family oral tradition as well as her research into Wabanaki archeology and first-hand studies of surviving ‘material culture’. Additionally, participants can make a hands-on connection to Abenaki culture by making a small textile sample, similar to what has been found at archeological sites of the northeast.
