Abenaki Snow Snakes In-Person Workshop

January 28 @ 10:00 am - 12:00 pm

RSVP HERE!

For more than a thousand years, when winter blanketed the land, indigenous people engaged in snow snake games. The games are making a comeback and you’re invited to join in the festivities taking place on Saturday, February 11th, at the Millet Green in Alstead. The games begin with a sacred fire, a smudging/blessing and a good native yell to cheer on the competitors.

In preparation for the games, join Chief and Elder Paul (Gwilawato) Bunnell, Tribal Genealogist, at the Monadnock Food Co-op on January 28th from 10 am – 12 noon, to learn about the rich Abenaki culture while crafting a snow snake. This special workshop is hosted by The Monadnock Co-op, Ko’askek (Co’wasuck) Traditional Band of the Sovereign Abenaki Nation, and The Sustainability Project. Materials and light refreshments will be provided.
