Colonialism creates a division within the culture that is being colonized, a tendency seen in Europeans’ early contact with Algonquin tribal groups. Abenaki singer-songwriter Bryan Blanchette demonstrates a living vision of modern Indigenous culture through contemporary and traditional Abenaki songs, showing how our cultural similarities can foster unity.
