Learn about the Abenaki

The Nature Museum and Whiting Library announce that The Nature Museum’s Summer Unplugged series will be back for another year of programs. Join them Wednesdays at 1p.m. in the library for a different topic every week.

The Abenaki are the indigenous people that have, and still do, call much of modern day Northern New England home. The Nature Museum highlights the Native American philosophy of kinship with nature and respect for every form of living creature. Come learn about Abenaki life pre-contact to the Europeans (late 1500’s) and discover how their indigenous knowledge along with tools, skills, and natural resources were utilized to live closely with the landscape. Explore hands on artifacts, talk about what life was like in a different time, and engage in other respectful activities to help learn about the Abenaki and nature.

The family programs are recommended for children ages 4 and up and include time for making a relevant and fun craft.
