About: Dr. Frederick M. Wiseman (Abenaki Nation of Missiquoi) was trained as a Paleoethnobotanist at the University of Arizona’s Laboratory for Paleoenvironmental Studies. Since 1987, he has focused on the Indigenous Wabanaki people of the far Northeast, having published popular and academic books, curricula, and film on modern Indigenous culture and prehistoric archaeology, as well as Contact Period ethnohistory, politics and technology.

Additionally, since 2009, Dr. Wiseman has worked with various Indigenous communities in the Northeast to re-configure a nearly lost Northeastern agricultural heritage. Dr. Wiseman’s current activity focuses on the creation of the Vermont Indigenous Heritage Center and Botanical Gardens in Burlington, VT.
