AHA “Abenaki Helping Abenaki” Inc. (“AHA”), is a 501(c)(3) non-profit organization primarily created for charitable, religious and educational purposes. AHA’s mission is to preserve the culture, community awareness, charitable endeavors and outreach of the Nulhegan Band of the Coosuk Abenaki People (“Nulhegan Band”). AHA provides various educational resources to meet the unique educational and culturally related academic needs of the Nulhegan Band and other Native American students. Also, AHA supplies community members with healthy food and necessary essentials in times of need. Lastly, AHA is committed to educating Nulhegan Band citizens and other Native Americans on traditional, organic, agriculture and sustainable living.
The Seventh Harvest Relief Project is an evolution of the Longhouse Food Pantry. With unemployment at record breaking highs and an ever increasing cost of living, it is entirely necessary to share with those less fortunate. Food, hygiene, warm wear, and heat during winter are a necessity to survival and comfort in the Northeast Kingdom. Permaculture, organic community gardens, and a remembrance of the old ways brings us closer to sustainable and green living.
