We would like to take the time to recognize everyone and all the groups who we work closely with to bring all of these things to the public.
Other Vermont Tribes
The mission of the Nulhegan Band of the Coosuk Abenaki Nation is to strengthen our government; to build our community, and ensure sustainability; to protect our customs and traditions; and to revive our culture and celebrate our heritage while sharing it with those around us. N’dakinna (our homeland) is nestled among the lakes, rivers, and forests of Vermont’s Northeast Kingdom. Our connection to this land cannot be described in any language. It is our birthright and obligation to advocate for our ancestral territory so that its uniqueness and beauty will be protected for the generations to come.
El-Nu is a small Abenaki tribe- or what some might call an Abenaki band, which has taken a different path from the average modern tribe or band. Although you may occasionally see some of us at powwows or doing lectures and demonstrations on Abenaki Culture, we devote most our time to the historical or living history aspects of Wabanaki culture.
We, the Koasek Traditional Band of the Sovereign Abenaki Nation, trace the origin of our tribe back over 180 years. The Abenaki Nation has inhabited our land for over 10,000 years.
Our home land is N’dakinna, which incorporates Eastern Canada, and what are now known as the New England States. Our tribal band originated in what is now called Vermont. However, our families traveled all of N’dakinna and called the entire area home. We had no borders and even today, we don’t recognize the borders. N’dakinna is our homeland.
Abenaki Art Association
The Vermont Abenaki Artists Association embodies the history, culture, and art of the Abenaki people. While most of our artists and performers preserve and pass down the traditional art of our ancestors, others create contemporary artistic expressions that are informed by tradition.

Ethan Allen Homestead
Situated on a small promontory just above the Winooski River out of reach of flood waters in Burlington’s Intervale is a small, unassuming frame house. Its style is what real estate agents today would call “Cape Cod.” Modern siding makes it look quite ordinary, but this house has stood there for 192 years. No marker identifies it; tourists do not swarm about it. Yet its identity has never been actually lost. Sitting in untouched surroundings, out of site of a new development off North Avenue and visible now from the “Beltline”, this modest farm house was the last home of General Ethan Allen, Vermont’s revolutionary hero. It was built by him and in it he died.
