Homelands: Augmented Reality App

Homelands: Augmented Reality brings Abenaki lifeways of the past, present, and future into the world around you as you visit one of our three partner sites:
Odiorne State Park / Seacoast Science Center

Strawbery Banke Museum

Star Island Corporation
Through detailed illustrations--created by Jordan Schmolka, in collaboration with Indigenous collaborators Denise Pouilot, Paul Pouliot, Kathleen Blake and Anne Jennsion--visitors can learn about the peoples who have stewarded this land for over 13,000 years.
A Resource Guide to accompany Homelands is also available to download. It includes an overview of the illustrations and interpretive text available within Homelands, so you can bring the learning back to your home, classroom, or community.
