Since retiring from classroom teaching, Anne continues to be an active public educator. She tells Native American stories and teaches Abenaki history and culture through her appearances at schools, colleges, powwows, museums, historical societies, and libraries. Additionally, Anne gives demonstrations of Indigenous crafts such as beadwork and birch bark basket making. She also teaches storytelling workshops, traditional Abenaki crafts workshops, and gives storytelling performances at such places as Strawbery Banke Museum in Portsmouth, NH, the Mt. Kearsarge Indian Museum in Warner, NH and other venues throughout New England. At Strawbery Banke Museum , Anne is also a co-producer of the annual Dawnland StoryFest - New England’s only Native American Storytelling Festival.
