November 17, 2007 Meeting Minutes of the Alleged Cowasuck Band Pennacook/Abenaki People:

1st document: This document shows that Lynn Menard-Matheson was voted in for "War Chief". When has the these alleged Abenaki been at "war" with anyone, other than within it's own so-called "membership", or with those that helped created it (meaning Howard Franklin Knight, Jr. and the late Homer St. Francis, Sr.)?! The better description would have rather been her function would be to identifying "Incorporation property", and protecting the "Incorporation"; not alleged tribal property, and protecting the tribe.
2nd document: Lynn Menard-Mathieson, "Grandfather Maple", and Gail Demers were voted to be on a Genealogy Committee. Did Paul Wilson Pouliot or Denise, his wife, resubmit their genealogy, with primary sources, along with all other documentation? Everyone needed to comply by July 2008 to stay in the alleged "tribe".
"Tribal Headquarters" really means the "home-of-Paul Wilson Pouliot and Denise".
3rd document: An artisan co-op store would also be opened on their updated website. Lynn Menard-Mathieson created an online website to advertise sell their arts and crafts. This was taken as her "trying to create her own alleged tribe or group" according to Paul Wilson Pouliot, thus began the "smear campaign" against Lynn Menard-Mathieson.
Every time they have a so-called Tribal Meeting they also have a Board of Director's Meeting for Paul Wilson Pouliot's Inc. Cowass North America. WHY? They say that one and the other is seperate from each other. Charles and Rhonda Besaw-True say the same thing for Abenaki Nation of New Hampshire Inc.

On Abenaki Pride: Setting the Record Straight Blog on October 30, 2009 8:14 PM, (do they ever know how to stand up and be responsible and accountable for their words? "They" never show anyone WHO they really are.....kind of deceptive don't one think?!) "Anonymous said... "I damn well don't need or will ever seek out their permission or anyone else's to be Abenaki or to conduct myself upon this land as such."

MY REPY: Good, then since this person doesn't need or will ever seek out "their permission or anyone else's" to be allegedly Abenaki or to conduct themselves upon this land as such.....then why did these "alleged" Abenaki Groups in N.H., MA, and Vermont go running to their persepctive Commonwealth's Secretary of State Agencies to "incorporate" themselves as "non-profit businesses"? When these alleged Abenaki "Groups" did this, did they not loose all sovereignty altogether? Or am I mistaken? Or is it that these alleged self-proclaiming bunch of alleged Abenaki groups simply trying to b.s. the Commonwealth of Vermont (and these other nine or more States) into assuming that these various "groups" are really the legitimate Abenaki People?

This blog Reinvention of the Vermont Abenaki is not to even imply that ANY ONE need seek my permission or authorization to "be Abenaki". Heck, if people want to pretend they are Abenaki, when their genealogical records show and provide the evidence that they are not Abenaki, then implying that I am the one whose crazy, negative, hostile, or whatever..... is just about as absurd as one can conclude I think.
Finding a 1600's Mikmaq ancestor in someone's genealogical history, or even Huron from that same time period, etc. does not make that descendant a Mikmaq or even a Huron, let alone an Abenaki Indian person.
I could say, because my surname is Buchholz by birth, that I gain recognition from Germany. Do you think that Nation would grant me recognition? Not without certain condition having been met first, with genealogical documentation. I could say, because I was legally adopted by James Leckie, because my surname is Scottish, since he was born in Bellshill, Scotland....that I be recognised by Scotland as a Scotsman. Think I would get that recognition? My Woodward's came from Rushden, England since I am by my mother's father, a direct descendant of the English Woodward's. I even did a DNA tests on quite a few of my Woodward Woodard relatives to confirm/strengthen their genealogical records. Does this mean I can then be identified and recognized by England as a citizen of that Nation as well?
Just because someone happens to have an ancestor way back in their genealogical records, indicating they had a Mikmaq ancestor, a Huron ancestor, or even an Abenaki ancestor, does not make them into an Abenaki.
No one needs my permission to be anything, but I think it is absurd to watch these people become aware at 30, 40, 55, and even into their elderly years, discover their Native ancestral connections genealogical, then subsequently go to Pow-wow's and go about pretending they are of the Abenaki People, when in fact they are not. Facts may be they are Huron, they may be Mohawk, they may be Algonquin, or whatever, but most obviously they are not part of a historical, cohesive, continuous, genealogically conntected Abenaki Community! They created these "incorporations" and now they are trying to pick up historical maps, and so on, even to the point of saying they have done DNA testing to prove they are Abenaki (which by the way, is impossible).

IF it is true, that this unidentified person, what this person proclaims, then they ought not to have any issue with what is on this blog documentarily or in my commentary. They can keep running around in their "leathers and feathers" proclaiming that they are Abenaki every weekend as many Pow-wow's/School presentations/Museum's as they can attend "because of their 1600's Huron or MicMaq ancestral connection from their 8th, 9th, or 11th Great Grandmother", and they can help perpetuate the geneocide against the Native People's that happen to come from legitimate Abenaki Communities who have legitimate genealogical docoumentation, etc.
This blog is merely to show the absurdity of these incorporated groups led by the late Homer St. Francis, Sr, and numerous others, claims, conduct and words for what such has been. As yet, no one has proven with documentation that my position or my conclusions are incorrect. I find that interesting. I think the Commonwealth of Vermont, and these other States, as well as the PUBLIC in each someday will find that interesting as well. The Truth, whatever that is, will eventually show itself for what it is, whether we like it or not.
