November 26, 2001 Tribe willing to work with state to build casino ~ November 21, 2001 Indian tribe not looking to build casino Newspaper Artcles:

On November 26, 2001, in a newspaper article, it was stated that Paul Wilson Pouliot's "group" may be interested in putting a casino on a piece of land it owns near Mount Sunapee. Paul Pouliot, a spokesman for the Cowasuck tribe, said the tribe is willing to work with Gov. Jeanne Sheheen, the Legislature, the congressional delegation and other state officials to establish a casino on the 137-acre property....
Two days later, on November 28, 2001, the above newspaper article of A9 was published. Paul W. Pouliot "retracts" his previously made statements, stating "A spokesman for a small American Indian tribe says his group is not looking to put a casino on land it (he) owns near Mount Sunapee, despite news reports to the contrary last week. Then how did the article of November 26, 2001 get into the news regarding casino's/gambling/N.H. Education Funding/ and this alleged and re-invented group claiming to be Cowasuck Abenaki? THINK ABOUT IT
Retrosepctively-speaking, I found the following:
In Paul Wilson Pouliot's Aln8bak News (copyrighted) 97-3 July-August-September/ Tomaskikos-Tomaskikos-Temez8was-Skamonas 1997 Page-2 entitled "Goshen Gathering 1 in the Woods": "From July 16 to 21 we held an open tribal gathering at the Pouliot tribal lands in Goshen, New Hampshire. Paul Tamburro and his wife Andrea traveled from Washington State to attend the "unity and peace" pipe back to the east coast for the summer meeting thatwas held on July 11, 1997.
I did a little "investigation" regarding this "Tribal Property".......

According to the Land Deed of Sale, it was sold to Paul Wilson Pouliot and his 1st wife Linda (nee: Whites) Pouliot of 160 Dailey Drive in Franklin, Worcester County, Massachusetts 03038. This  137.1 acres was NOT sold to any "Tribe"
"Cowasuck Band" etc......Factually and documentarily, the 137.1 acres was deeded by Warranty to two (2) private citizens of Franklin, Massachusetts, Paul W. Pouliot and Linda A. Pouliot, husband and wife.
On July 29, 2008, this 137.1 acres of property in Goshen, New Hampshire was sold by Paul W. Pouliot and his wife Linda A. Pouliot for the total sum of $85,000.00 US Dollars. This monetary sum was dvivided in two portions, to each party (whom were Paul W. Pouliot and his wife Linda A. Pouliot) upon their divorce.
This 137.1 acres of land was NEVER "Tribal" land, except in the delusional minds of those involved.
It is my understanding, that it was Paul Tamburro (now of Kamloops, British Columbia, Canada) who retrosepctively had recommended, suggested and urged of Paul W. Pouliot to purchase property/land in New Hampshire, since the Cowasuck "really belonged in Vermont or New Hampshire", and "that it would look good", "make the group appear to be more legitimate" geographically-speaking, instead of being in Franklin, Massachusetts.
It would be later that, after Paul Wilson Pouliot's wife Linda bought out her ex-husband's interest in the 160 Dailey Drive "aka Red Hawk Lodge" residence, that Paul Wilson Pouliot and Denise K. (nee: Beauregard) Mehigan of 8 Linda Lane in Forestdale, MA 02344 subsequently relocated to Alton, Belknap County, New Hampshire by record of Warranty Deed Book 2470 Page 1 Document #0801110 on January 31, 2008. It was on August 16, 2008 in Alton, Belnap County, New Hamsphire that Jamie Mehigan's wife Denise Katherine (nee: Beauregard) Mehigan remarried to Paul Wilson Pouliot.

This "Pouliot tribal land" reminds me of "Chief" Homer W. St. Francis' wife Patricia "Patsy" (nee: Partlow) St. Francis had sought food stamps from D.S.H.S. on April 01, 1993. When asked if the Berkshire, Vermont "hunting camp" valued at $11,000.00 was owned by the "Abenaki Tribe", she replied "that she and her husband owned it." On appeal, dated July 29, 1993, "Chief" Homer St. Francis (without Patsy accompanying her husband) maintained that he and his wife purchased the land (10.3 acres with a camp and toolshed) from Harry J. Laughy Sr. and Jr. of St. Albans, Vermont for $10.00 and more dollars on March 28, 1988 Page 266 and 267 some years earlier in order to "reclaim" it for the Abenaki tribe. He said it belongs to the tribe as a whole, and that his and his wife's names are on the deed only to comply with "white man's law."
