ABENAKI TRIBE

The Abenakis drank the sap of the maple tree and were the first to boil it to make sugar. The Sugar Moon is the first full moon during sugaring season.

 

The Abenakis gathered the sap in clay or bark containers and poured into hollowed out logs and then dropped rocks heated in a fire into the sap to make syrup.
