Description: Nebi ("water"): Abenaki Ways of Knowing Water was produced by Chief Don Stevens, Nulhegan Abenaki Tribe; and Kris Stepenuck & Ashley Eaton, Lake Champlain Sea Grant, UVM Extension, and the Rubenstein School of Environment and Natural Resources. The film was created to share and help preserve the Abenaki creation stories of Lake Champlain, and the deep connection Abenaki people have with water. It opens with Chief Don Stevens of the Nulhegan Abenaki tribe sharing stories of the creation of the Lake Champlain Basin, the lake itself, and an underwater serpent who protects the lake; many people know this serpent today as Champ. The film continues with short vignettes from several Abenaki tribal members who share their knowledge of water use by past and present Abenaki people and about the significance of water in the lives of the Abenaki people, and of all people.
