Traditional Activities Album
The families of ELNU pass Abenaki traditions down to our children in a variety of ways.  Some of these
ways are singing Wabanaki Songs and Chants; dancing at Powwows; having Socials,
practicing Traditional Spirituality; passing on Oral Tradition; Story Telling; taking the kids out on treks
and wilderness excursions; and paying homage to those who have gone before us.
