Anne's Performance Calendar:
Summer 2018 -
Anne - Demonstrating various kinds of Abenaki craFts on most fridays In the Jones House at Strawbery Banke museum in portsmouth, nh (from 10 am - 5 pm).
These are actually not storytelling performances. Throughout the day, Anne will be giving informal demonstrations of some Abenaki crafts - such as birchbark containers and coiled cornhusk baskets. She'll also be telling museum visitors about the history and culture of the Abenaki tribes of Northern New England.
More dates will be listed month-by-month below, in addition to the dates listed above. More than likely, you'll find Anne in the Jones House at Strawbery Banke Museum on Thursdays and/or Fridays this summer.
Be sure to ask Anne to tell you about Portsmouth's Treaty of 1713. This is the treaty negotiation conference that was held between Governor Dudley of Massachusetts Colony (and other assorted MA and NH colonial gentlemen) with representatives of all of the Wabanaki tribes. The purpose of the conference was to inform the "Eastern Indians" about the peace treaty that had been signed between the English and the French at the end of Queen Anne's War - and to "negotiate" how the terms of that treaty would play out on the ground in Northern New England.

The Heartbeat of the People
Music is an integral part of Native American culture and there are few better opportunities to appreciate it’s beauty and complexity than at a traditional powwow. The drum is often heralded as the “heartbeat of the people” and MKIM is fortunate to host several of the best Northern and Southern style drums in New England for their annual powwow.
