Language, History, Music & Storytelling Programs
The content of my public speaking engagements is very flexible based on needs. I usually offer any combination of history, storytelling, music, and efforts in language revitalization.
I’ve been visiting schools for over thirty years sharing Abenaki stories, music, history and language. Performances can be to an individual classroom or in any size venue.
I’m comfortable and experienced with student audiences from preschool to adult. I always tailor the content and focus of my programs to fit the needs of the audience.
