My girlfriend is part native American and interested in doing an impression of an Abenaki, Maliseet or Micmac woman in Maine in 1790 - 1810. I have been doing F & I and Rev War milita for some time, but I don't know much about native American reenacting. Do you have any suggestions for some "must have" books or other resources to research this?

Online

Abbe Musum (www.abbemuseum.org) They have a lot of good resources online, if you can't visit.

MicMac and Malecite Cultural Objects
http://epe.lac-bac.gc.ca/100/205/301/ic/cdc/objects/default.htm

Canada's digital Collection
http://collections.ic.gc.ca/

Ne-Do-Ba www.avcnet.org/ne-do-ba/

WesternAbenakiradio.com Has a lot of good resources

Micmac talking dictionary www.mikmaqonline.org

Jesuit Relations Vol 67 look for Sebastian Rasles
http://puffin.creighton.edu/jesuit/relations/

Malian's Story:
http://www.vermontfolklifecenter.org/childrens-books/malians-song/index.shtml

Books

James F. O'Neil "Their Bearing is Noble and Proud Vol 1-2" This is an economical compilation of primary sources focusing on appearances.

Sheryl Hartman "Indian Clothing of the Great Lakes 1740-1840" The focus is on the lakes but it is still a good resource.

C. Kieth Wilbur "New England Indians" "Woodland Indians" "Indian Handicrafts" Lots of pictures and references to NE museums. Take with a grain of salt

Michael Galban "Constructing Woodland Moccasins" DVD This is the best moccasin DVD made. I wish Michael had written a book to accompany it.

Ted Spring Sketchbook '56 "Indian Allies" and "Distaff" take these with a grain of salt.

Distaff crafts these are very good:

Gerald L Findley "Fingerweaving Basics" This is the best book on Fingerweaving.

Jean Heinbuch "A Quillwork Companion" The best book on Quillwork

Matt Richards "Deerskins to Buckskins" Book and DVD
