-Dugout Canoe Burning*
Kwai all, Roger Longtoe Sheehan and Mike Plant,
members of the Elnu Abenaki Tribe, will be demonstrating
one of the ways traditional Native tattooing
could have been done.
They will also be talking to folks about what their tattoos
mean to them, and some of the history and traditions of
northeastern Native tattooing.
Roger, at the age of 14, did his first traditional tattoos on
himself after he had a dream about them. This led him to
want to learn more about how his ancestors tattooed and
what their tattoos looked like.
He has been learning ever since.
Linda Longtoe Sheehan will be demonstrating
her wampum work. Linda has been designing
and making wampum belts, writsbands, necklaces,
bracelets and earrings for over twenty-five years.
You'll be able to purchase her work that day and
later through our museum store.
We'll Be Working on Our
Dugout Canoe Too
Stop by the parking lot
to say hello!
