Great Falls Discovery Center
2 Avenue A


Storyteller, author, musician, and Abenaki language teacher, Jesse Bruchac weaves the telling of traditional stories with flute music and playful language games to share a glimpse of Northeastern Native American culture with audiences of all ages. According to Jesse, “Native languages offer speakers a window into an indigenous worldview.” He is one of the last fluent speakers of Western Abenaki and works vigorously to revitalize the language. He is an accomplished musician, producing several albums of Abenaki music. These include collections of traditional songs of drum and rattle and Native American flute music.
