The goal of this project is to visibly honor and share a more inclusive history of the Abenaki people, to highlight historical Abenaki sites and to accentuate the positive influences we have had with Colonial America and the towns we continue to live in today.
We will be working with each town and each town’s historical society independently to highlight sites in their town and to erect and or install monuments and/or signage to educate visitors about the Abenaki people and their influence on the area.
The project will kick off in Contookcook/Hopkinton, NH and will be working with some of the best people in the fields of archaeology, anthropology and historical societies. From there we will continue to work with various other towns to install similar educational sites promoting awareness and appreciation of Abenaki History. These sites will form an Abenaki Trail which people can travel from town to town learning about our great history and the impact we continue to have on communities today as a living and thriving culture.
