Ethan Allen Homestead: Living Village: This event took place at the Ethan Allen Homestead. It was the first time in 250 years that the Abenaki have had an encampment at that location. It was a great success. It was reported that we drew in triple the regular attendance. I’d like to thank the Cultural Revitalization Committee for all their efforts. A special thank you to Dan O’Neil of the Ethan Allen Homestead for being such a gracious host for the event. I’ve been told that we are not only welcome back next year but they would like to plan a larger event ( and during a warmer time).

Wliwni,
Chief Eugene Rich,
Missisquoi Abenaki Nation.
