Abenaki Speaker Series: Jesse Bowman Bruchac

February 18, 2021 @ 5:00 pm - 6:00 pm

Free
The Community College of Vermont will be hosting an Abenaki speaker series on Zoom as part of their ongoing efforts to honor the Abenaki people, the original stewards of the land on which all CCV academic centers reside. On Thursday, February 18, CCV will host storyteller, musician, and Abenaki language instructor Jesse Bowman Bruchac.

Bruchac is a member of the Nulhegan Abenaki tribe who works as co-director of his family-run education center Ndakinna, where he teaches Native American life ways, martial arts, and the Abenaki language. He is also the director of the School of Abenaki, a part of the Middlebury Language Schools.

The presentation is free, but registration is required here.  It will last for 35-40 minutes followed by a 20-25 minute question and answer period.
