State Vital Record Information pertaining to Flora (Ingerson) Hunt

No where within Flora (nee: Ingerson) Hunt's obituary was there any mention of her being Abenaki, and in FACT it is indicated that she was born 1. (per her death record) in Monroe, Grafton County, New Hampshire, or 2. (per her published Obituary in the Littleton Courier newspaper) in Littleton, Grafton County, New Hampshire (which one would think this information was gained by this obituary being published by her children, or grandchildren based on their awareness of the woman had told them, or shown them while she was alive. NOT some alledged Jefferson, Coos County, New Hampshire "Abenaki Village" in ca. 1874 (according to Nancy Millette-Cruger-Lyons), that according to the Archaeological "professional's" state that the Jefferson archaeological sites contained no CONTACT PERIOD or WOODLAND PERIOD materials or evidence! The two documents above I had recieved from Rhonda (nee: Besaw) True, wife of Charles Francis True Jr. of Whitefield, Coos County, New Hampshire via email. Future postings will show why she was sharing these Vital Record documents with me. The obituary I found on microfilm at the Littleton Public Library.

July 18th-19th, 1998 "Sagakwa" Twin Mountain, New Hampshire Pow-wow Event Brochure

Page 01 of this Sagakwa a.k.a. Twin Mountain, Grafton County, New Hampshire Pow-wow event is quite interesting. Clearly, Nancy Cruger (nee: Millette) (and later running under her married name of Lyons) states, "I am the great-granddaughter of Flora (nee: Ingerson) Hunt and Sagakwa has become a cultural exchange weekend from a promise I made to her before she died (you will read more of this "evolving" Great Grandma Flora "story" of Nancy's as further documentation is shown on this blog). Flora was a very proud Abenaki woman and spent much of her life gathering roots and making medicines, helping to raise her grandchildren and teaching all of us our history...our own roots. She also loved the bible and loved to write. Even when she was old and blind she continued writing (how could she write if she was blind?!), which fooled us great-grandchildren into thinking she could see.
This story about "How the Old Man of the Mountain Came to Be: an Abenaki Story" is out of another book, so it has been said. I doubt very much this is "an Abenaki version" of anything. I recall that I was tending the Pow-wow Circle's fire at this event. I remember that alot of people thought the Pow-wow t-shirts with Michael Eastman's Indianized face on them were a bit to "egotistical". I simply thought that the man "used" his own face as a template for his artistic work. Of course, wearing someone's "face" on a t-shirt at a Pow-wow (I know I wore the t-shirt at this event) along with everyone else, was a-bit-of-an-overkill, at least to my thinking. Michael Eastman also looked up in the Gordon Day Abenaki-English Dictionary, the term "sagakwa" AI : shout with pleasure, cheer which is on 443 of the Abenaki to English "Blue" Dictionary......in the English to Abenaki "Red" Dictionary on page 348 is the same information. An Elder once told me that this word sagakwa did not mean to shout with pleasure, or to cheer....but rather it meant to shout with pleasure (as in sexually) when being intimate with another person. Certainly if this is the truth of the meaning of this word sagakwa, then Creator only knows what the ancestors/Old Ones were thinking when they went to this Pow-wow event in Twin Mountain in July 1988. I sometimes wonder if anyone (who might have known the honest-to- goodness Abenaki Language) got the impression they were going to some inappropriate Indianized "orgy" when they read there was a "Sagakwa Pow-wow going on in Twin Mountain, N.H. on July 18-19, 1998?

June 24, 1998 - July 15, 1998 and July 18th - 19th "Sagakwa" Twin Mountain, N.H. Pow-wow

I will move on to what the purpose of this blog is all about; documentation of which needs to be shown, so that one can make up their own minds, as to the legitimate "merits" of these alledged Abenaki "groups" claims and proclamations.
It is mentioned in the July 15th, 1998 newspaper article that, "Jim and Terri Clothey of Whitefield will recreate an Abenaki Village of the 18th century". Guess who they were bringing along to help populate this so called Abenaki Village of the 18th century? You guessed it, the new and improved "re-enactors", the El-Nu "group" now calling themselves "The ELNU Tribe Of The Abenaki" and they even have "The Great Seal of the ELNU Abenaki, Of The People". This "group" allied with and was created by & promoted via Nancy Lee (Millette) Cruger - Lyons, as a "sub-band" of the "group" Koasek Traditional Band of Abenaki.
Now, let's for a minute or two follow the little yellow brink road and see where it will take us about this "group" called the El-nu so called "tribe or band" as they like to call themselves today (June 15th, 2009)....don't forget Too-too and the Little People.....
SOURCE: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Unrecognized_tribes
Koasek Traditional Band of the Sovereign Abenaki Nation (formerly Northern New England-Coos Band, Independent Clans of the Coos United, Cowasuck of North America and Cowasuck-Horicon Traditional Band; a.k.a. Cowasuck Traditional Band of the Sovereign Abenaki Nation). This tribe is composed of: Coos Band of Abenaki Nation and/or called Northern New England Band of Abenaki Nation.
The latter "incorporated names" of Howard F. Knight Jr. a.k.a. "Chief" Rushing Water's self-created and self-promoted invented Abenaki "Tribes" and/or "Bands"!! Just do the math......1, 2, 3, 4.......1+1=2 and 2+2=4 and so on.... This will all of it make sense as we post new information and documentation that you can review and evaluate yourselves. Just follow along the "yellow brick road" of how these "leaders/ "Chiefs"/Representatives and their "membership"/"followers" have conducted themselves throughout the past 15 years to the present. Simply said, it is quite "revealing" indeed as to who they REALLY have been & are.

Re: AbenakiPride: Setting the Record Straight.blogspot.com

How very interesting that whoever this peron or persons is/are and whomever they "represent" does not use their real given name! Again, there is NO repsonsibility or transparency in their words or conduct. This is merely a platform or foundation in which to assault me personally, as they have done before, which you will read for yourselves as I post those documents. What I have posted on this blog of mine is VERY PERSONAL. Personal in that THEY REFUSE to SHOW the genealogical or social evidence of their self-created and promoted claims of alledgedly being Abenaki descendants.

So what if "Chief" and/ or "Grand Chief" Homer St. Francis is DECEASED now! What?, I can't speak/ discuss anything about his life, him or anyone else, because he happened to have passed away on July 07, 2001? So, if that is the case (and this "other" person is correct in their conclusion about not talking about deceased person's because that deceased person is unable to "defend themselves", then that means we can't talk about or critize or discuss deceased people "because they can't defend themselves" like for exmaple, Christopher Columbus, Samuel de Champlain, Abraham Lincoln, Odzihozo, or Jesus himself!. No one ought not to be discussed either by the likes of "Dr." Frederick Matthew Wiseman (and by anyone else in the living), since these people are all deceased as well. According to this "unknown person" obviously I alledgedly have "little respect for or courage towards the deceased" because I have discussed their lives, etc. on this blog. Can you "see" the absurdity in this conclusion of theirs? I certainly do.

"Defensiveness" is an interesting trait to all of these "groups" and their "membership", who are alledgedly "Abenaki".

I will keep posting new clarifying documentation regarding persons in these "groups" as time goes along.
If "they" can make enough "noise" and create enough "distractions" they are hoping that the Vermont/ and New Hampshire PUBLIC and the Vermont/ New Hampshire Legislature's will pay no heed to the documentary information that I am and will be presenting on this blog. It is obviously not in their favor, for their repeated attempt's at Instant Vermont and/ or New Hampshire State Recognition, or otherwise.

So the ultimate and very simple question needs to be asked. Who is this person who created this http://www.abenakipride.blogspot.com/, since obviously it is they who are still "hiding in plain sight"!
