Indigenous connections to a local village: Abenaki example

This is a sample activity which starts with a few maps of W8banaki territory, then asks students to research, both in terms of what happened to Indigenous groups in the area, and the history of a target village.  

Students respond to sample Guiding Question suggestions:
- How did the arrival of Europeans affect the W8banaki peoples?
- How were the involved in the history of Québec and/or the history of your local region?
