The Vermont Abenaki Artists Association embodies the history, culture and art of the Abenaki people. While most of our artists and performers preserve and pass the traditions art of our ancestors, others create contemporary artistic expressions that are informed by tradition.
Our mission is to promote Vermont's Indigenous arts and artists, to provide an organized central place to share creative ideas and professional development as entrepreneurs, and to have a method for the public to find and engage our artists.
VAAA's experienced teaching artists have been doing educational programs at schools, historic sites and museums throughout the Northeast, Mid-Atlantic and Southeast areas of the United States, in Canada and as far away as Germany. Programs include lectures, worshops, demonstrations and persformance that carry the messgae that the Abenaki people are still here.
