We have so much talent here in the Northeast Kingdom. The March issue of Vermont’s Northland Journal will feature the sketches of early Abenaki life by Bea Nelson of Derby. Her work and knowledge are simply amazing. It only seems fitting that her work appears in the March issue – our sugaring edition. History indicates it was the Abenaki and other Native groups who taught the first European settlers about the wonders of the sugarmaking. These are some of Bea’s artworks.
