Thursday, February 16, 7:00 PM
Dr. Frederick M. Wiseman (Abenaki Nation of Missiquoi) was trained as a Paleoethnobotanist at the University of Arizona’s Laboratory for Paleoenvironmental Studies. Since 1987, he has focused on the Indigenous Wabanaki people of the far Northeast, having published popular and academic books, curricula, and film on modern Indigenous culture and prehistoric archaeology, as well as Contact Period ethnohistory, politics and technology. Additionally, since 2009, Dr. Wiseman has worked with various Indigenous communities in the Northeast to re-configure a nearly lost Northeastern agricultural heritage. Dr. Wiseman’s current activity focuses on the creation of the Vermont Indigenous Heritage Center and Botanical Gardens in Burlington, VT. In recognition of International Anthropology Day, we welcome Dr. Wiseman for a virtual presentation on this Center’s mission to learn and teach elements of Vermont Abenaki culture that have a deep-time presence in the state, from music and dance to subsistence. This program will give a brief introduction to how evidence-based research and education may, in part, uplift and defend endangered Indigenous Communities. Join Dr. Wiseman for a presentation and discussion to be hosted on ZOOM.
