September 1998 Swanton Newsletter

Notice on "Page 03" of this Swanton Newsletter put out by "Grand Chief" Homer W. St. Francis and his "Acting Chief" April St. Francis-Rushlow (now under the married name of Merrill in June 2009), that Fred Wiseman (Frederick Matthew Wiseman) is stating that, "The New Abenaki Tribal Museum and Cultural Center will have a Grand Opening/Open House for Abenaki Tribal Citizens on October 25th, 1998."
Indeed, it was he, Mr. Frederick M. Wiseman himself, from Johnson State College who self-created and self-promoted this so-called "Abenaki Museum", which he now calls the "Wobanakik Heritage Center". His wife's son, Aaron York (from a previous marriage) has also been promoted by his step-father Frederick Matthew Wiseman through this Wobanakik Heritage Center, in Aaron's canoe making; etc.
I found a June 25th-June 30th 1995 Gin8dokawa Aln8baiwi "Teaching the Abenaki Way" flier and I will post that in my next posting. I think it will be of interest to some readers of this blog.
