Step 4 Forward Along The Yellow Brick Road of the Reinvented Abenaki of Vermont and New Hampshire:

Document 01: On September 30, 1976 Page 12 "The State Office of Economic Opprotunity was awarded four grants totaling $291,440.00. A $30,000.00 grant is to be delegated to the Abenaki Tribal Council for food programs and a crisis releif program for the Indians of northwestern Vermont." ASHAI.

Document 02: October 26, 1976 Page 07 of the Bennington Banner. Thomas Salmon, the then Governor of Vermont is urged to recognize the Abenakis. "Gov. Thomas Salmon has been urged to grant formal State Recognition to the Abenaki Indians, thus providing them with a valuable tool in dealing with the Federal Government." Jane Baker, a anthropologist of Berlin, Vermont "leaned heavily on the work of John Moody" of Sharon-Norwich, Vermont, an ethnohistorian working with the Swanton, Vermont alleged Abenaki led by the late Homer St. Francis. I don't think anyone evaluated the actual genealogical records of these people claiming to being Missisquoi Abenakis at all.

November 04, 1977: At the request of Arthur "Bill" Seymour and Kent Ouimette, Chief Noel St. Aubin  of Wolinak's Abenaki Community situated in the Province of Quebec, Canada, issued a Resolution from the Abenakis of Becancour (Wolinak) in support of all of the Abenakis in the United States.
