N’dakinna, the homelands of the Pennacook-Abenaki, encompass the Connecticut River Valley and stretch from the now known province of Quebec, Canada, to the U.S. states of Maine, New Hampshire, Vermont, New York, and Massachusetts. The indigenous communities of N’dakinna held the sentiment that the Earth and its abundance is a sacred resource, and as such, the land, water, and air must be cared for as they support life. This fostered a sense of environmental stewardship.
What did environmental stewardship look like in N’dakinna, and how has this legacy extended into modern day? What are the current concerns of indigenous peoples regarding the Connecticut River, and how does its health affect the livelihoods of indigenous and non-indigenous community members of the Valley? What might collaboration between CRJC and the Pennacock-Abenaki people look like?
Join us to learn more from Denise Pouliot and Paul Pouliot, tribal leaders and head speakers for the Cowasuck Band of the Pennacock-Abenaki People.
