Our Abenaki Study

Page history last edited by Austin 12 years, 12 months ago


The Abenaki


     Over the next few weeks, we will be learning about the Abenaki people.  As we study, we will likely have some questions about these Native Americans and their lives yesterday and today.  We are fortunate to have Professor Colin Calloway of Dartmouth College available to answer our questions and give us feedback on our projects.

     We will also be creating model Abenaki villages in our classrooms.  We will then photograph the villages and create a website with the pictures and information about our villages.  We will be combining our learning about the Abenaki with our learning about how to create a webpage!


     Professor Calloway has recommended the PBS series We Shall Remain.  You can watch the series of videos here

Hello, 3rd Graders! I have deleted all of your practice comments! Now that you all know how to log in and use this site, it is time for you to use it for the serious business of learning and sharing information about the Abenaki! Remember, if you want to ask Professor Calloway a question, go to his page on the site and "Add a Comment" with your question. When he answers your comment, he will reply to you. Be patient, however! He is very busy, so it may take him some time to respond! Next week, I will teach you how to add content to the wiki (not just comments!). Remember, too, to use your best writing; proper punctuation, capitalization, and spelling are all important! See you on the site! --Mrs. Kane

Did the abenaki work together with others indians or the french.

Professor Calloway said

at 1:33 pm on May 25, 2011


The Abenakis made alliances and cooperated with other tribes and with the French. The French brought trade and were also allies against the English, who wanted Abenaki land.

Professor Calloway said

Hard to say. Some tribes were here thousand of years before Europeans; some changed over time.
