Evan Pritchard, a descendant of the Micmac people (part of the Algonquin nations), is the founder of The Center for Algonquin Culture, and is currently Professor of Native American history at Marist College in Poughkeepsie, New York, where he also teaches ethics and philosophy. Named Abachbahamedtch (or chipmunk) by Micmac people, he is assistant to several Algonquin elders. Since 1990, his work helping Algonquin elders and bringing their message to the media has helped thousands of people gain a better understanding of this great civilization and its teachings. He lectures frequently around the United States, sharing storytelling, traditional and contemporary songs, and bi-lingual poetry. Professor Pritchard is the author of Native New Yorkers: The Legacy of the Algonquin People of New York, No Word For Time: The Way of the Algonquin People, Bird Medicine: The Sacred Power of Bird Shamanism, and many other books, including an Algonkian language series.
