Awikhigan is an Abenaki word that originally referred to writing & drawing on birchbark but has evolved to include bound books, letters, and maps, as well as works of art. Now it encompasses digital storytelling and GIS mapping.

In this workshop, Lisa Brooks will introduce a digital awikhigan, inviting participants to follow multiple narrative/image paths that run parallel with her new book, Our Beloved Kin: A New History of King Philip’s War.

The workshop is co-sponsored by the Princeton American Indian Studies Working Group (PAISWG) and the Center for Human Values.
