I am an Abenaki educator. I teach science, history and math through art. Currently I've been working with Gedakina and the University of New Hampshire through a National Science Foundation grant documenting sustainable land use practices with Indigenous youth in New England. This documentation has allowed us to create some of the most amazing maps and art projects. I also continue to teach basketry and beading. These skills often get lost in today’s fast pace world where it is easier to just buy a kit. Understanding the land helps to learn the basketry process. Using basket making to teach both science and math is such a great hands-on way to learn. My work has been on exhibit throughout the US and Canada including displays at the National Museum of the American Indians in Washington DC, Mc Cord Museum and Botanical Garden in Montreal, the University of Vermont and New Hampshire, some of my baskets were part of a three year tour with Honor the Earth Impacted Nations visiting, NYC, Minneapolis, Santa Fe, Portland, Chicago and more. My daily fee is $500. plus expenses. Please contact me if you have questions.
