Our Songs Remember

March 18 at 2:00 pm - 3:15 pm

Free

“Our Songs Remember” is a combination lecture and performance focusing on the ways in which the Abenaki oral traditions of storytelling and music play a part in the preservation of our indigenous ways. Incorporating Pakholigan (the drum) and Pabekongan (the flute) father and son Joseph and Jesse Bruchac will take you on a journey to the enduring roots of the Western Abenaki nations, showing how songs carry the heart and meaning of this enduring Native American culture. Both English and Abenaki language will be heard throughout the presentation and several stories will be told that exemplify the way oral tradition has always served at least two purposes—to entertain and to instruct.
