Highlighting Abenaki: UVM Collaborations That Bridge Communities

Apr 16, 2024
2:00 pm to 4:00 pm
Davis Center 401 (Silver Maple Room)

Western Abenaki people are the traditional stewards of the land on which UVM stands. Some UVM faculty, staff, and students have established and maintain productive relationships with members of Vermont¿s four State recognized Abenaki tribes and other indigenous people who live in Vermont or represent descendant communities with ancestral ties to the region. From sharing interpretations of archaeological heritage, to teaching traditional farming and land use practices to building a deeper understanding of indigenous culture, the Abenaki people have enriched UVM faculty, staff, and students with their wisdom and partnership. This panel will explore these relationships and highlight some of the knowledge developed and shared as they have and continue to work to address common goals.
