Franklin, Mass.
Dear Chief Pouliot, and To Whom it Concerns;
This letter is issued to allay any concerns that they may have in regards to the leadership of the Coos Peoples during this turbulent period due to the recent meeting in Swanton.
I. Chief Howard F. Knight Jr. (Chief Rushing Water) do hereby declare, in short and sweet terms, that I support Chief Paul W. Pouliot (Chief Spirit Hawk) in whatever decisionis he may make as the new Chief of the Coos, which took effect upon the day of the meeting in Swanton, VT. I am officially retired as Chief, having been Chief for 10 years. It was, and it is, time for new leadership, and it is even clearer now that Chief Spirit Hawk is the leader that the Coos Peoples need at this juncture in its history.
I am still Chief of the Turtle Clans of the Coos People, but I am retired as the Coos Tribal Band Chief. I will be available to Chief Spirit Hawk for advice, if he asks, or whatever else, otherwise I will not speak. I ask all to support the new Coos Chief in all he does.
Respectfully submitted with Warmest Regards to all of the Coos Peoples.

So, what was Howard Franklin Knight, Jr. up to in creating this document? It appears that his intention (based on subsequent words and actions by him after writing this document) that he was merely ONLY TEMPORARILY handing Paul Wilson Pouliot "the reins" or "Chief" title only UNTIL "the heat left the kitchen". Whereupon Howard Knight, Jr. wanted the alleged "Chieftonship" returned back to him, but then Paul Pouliot got used to the title, and wouldn't give it back, which pissed off Howard F. Knight, Jr., and so in May of 1994 and later in July 1994 Howard F. Knight with the help of Homer St. Francis, Sr., began to create a "smear campaign" against Paul Wilson Pouliot. Or was it all just a collusion between Pouliot and Knight to create yet another Inc. group in Massachusetts, to create the illusion and delusion of a self-created so called Incorporate Abenaki Nation?

As one will see in future documents, this alleged "retirement" of Howard F. Knight Jr. was repeated; again, and again, and again. These "retirement's" are documented factually.

November 02, 1994 The Journal Opinion Page 08: "Perspective on candidates, To the Editor: Many Abenaki and other native Americans, as well as many non-native people living within the ancient Cowasuck-Coos territory of Vermont, have been calling and asking me, as one of the leaders in the Abenaki Nation, to speak out in regards to which of the candidates should be considered by them in upcoming election on Nov. 8 (1994). I must make it clear that I cannot, I will not, and I do not speak as the chief spokesman of the Cowasuck Council of the Abenaki Nation; but I can, I will and I do speak as a registered voter and as a citizen of the state of Vermont. I look at the candidates throughout the ancient Cowasuck-Coos territory of Vermont. I look at them from the perspective of the ancient Abenaki attributes and laws of respect, straight-forward dealings based upon honor, personal integrity and their strength of personal intergrity, plus one of the most important attributes known as simple family oriented values. From my perspective, as I see it, based upon personal talks and intereviews in my home and elsewhere with the candidates or their personal representatives, or with those who are clearly informed in regards to the candidates and their positions on the issues, the following list of candidates are those that either I will personally vote for or for whom I would vote if I lived in the areas/districts mentioned, and I recommend them to all the voters, whether they be Abenaki, other Native Americans onr non-natives residing within the respective areas/districts mentioned: U.S. Senate, Matt Mulligan, Ind.; U.S. Representatives, no recommendation, no comment; Governor, Homer St. Francis, Ind., (write-in); Lt. Governor, Barbara Snelling, Rep.; State Senate, Orange County, Stephen Webster, Rep.; Orange/Caledonia, Julius Canns, Rep. and Robert Ide, Rep. (with reservations); State House, Thetford area, Ruth Dwyer, Rep.; Bradford area, no recommendation; Newbury area, Peter Mallary, Dem.; Barnet/St. Johnsbury area, Leigh Larocque, Rep.; Cabot/Peacham area, Caleb Pitkin, Dem. In Orange County, in the sheriff's campaign, it is like in Caledonia and Essex Counties, no recommendation. With the newest disclosures in the news media, since I am a student of the U.S. Constitution, I would have to say that the use of the sheriff's department for delivery of personal letters and threats, without a court order to back it up, is clearly unconstitutional, as well as a violation of civil rights and political intimidation. Our freedoms and our rights are hanging by a thread as it is here in the socialist state of Vermont. Howard F. Knight Jr. Newport, VT P.S. There are only three writs allowed by the U.S. Constitution, and clearly a writ of harassment is unconstitutional, as well as illegal.

Sunday, March 31, 1996 The Providence Sunday Journal, Page B-01 and B-14: Abenaki Tribes celebrate unity~The event in Atteboro brings representatives of more than a dozen different East Coast Indian tribes. By: Christian D. Berg, Journal-Bulletin Staff Writer in Attleboro, Massachusetts. "More than 100 Native Americans from throughout New England and eastern Canada gathered here yesterday to share their ancient heritages, practice sacred customs and offer prayers of peace. Sponsored by the National Federation of the Republic of the Sovereign Abenaki Nation, Grand Council of Southern New England, the event brought together representatives of Abenaki councils from across their territory. The Abenaki nation is made up of more than a dozen different East Coast tribes stretching from the Maritime Provinces in Canada south to North Carolina. Yesterday, for the first time ever in Southern New England, the Abenakis gathered at Bethany Congregational Church on Newport Avenue before making a short "unity walk" to a field at Hill Roberts School on Roy Avenue, where traditional ceremonies were held. Along the way, many members of the gathering eagerly shared their reasons for being there. "It's like a big family reunion," said Lester Little Fox, 57, of Quebec (Claim(s)(-ed) to be "Montagnais Indian from Quebec, Canada", was "Medicine Man" for Ralph Skinner Swett's, Clan of the Hawk, Inc., over in Evansville, Orleans County, Vermont. See Business Card Below). "To me, it's like coming home again, because we all have to live in the white man's world, but when we come together, we are home. It brings a spirit to my heart and uplifts me." For Rushing Water, 54, of Newport, Vt. (Howard Franklin Knight Jr.) the day was a call for unity and peace among the Abenaki peoples. When Europeans began to settle North America, said
(Page B-14) Rushing Water, the Abenaki nation was divided and the tribes turned against one another. Now, more than 300 years later, they are coming together as one. "We're trying to bring an end to the warfare and the fighting," said Rushing Water, who is the chief of the Grand Council of the Cowasuck Tribe, from Vermont. "We're all one nation, and this is part of the healing process to bring us all together, if we don't come together and unify, we're going to lose it all." And while Rushing Water (Howard Franklin Knight Jr) said that unity among the tribes is essential, it is just the first step in bringing about the ultimate answer to their prayers, which is peace among all peoples. "We've got to go beyond all that," he said. "We've got to reach out to all races -yellow, black, white and red-because we've got our children and that is our future." Eagle Warrior of the Sun, a 53-year-old member of the Lakota tribe from Derby, Vt., offered his own spin on the peace issue. "I hope and pray that peace will come between the tribes and all people, but we can only find peace without our hearts. It begins at home," Eagle Warrior said. Upon arriving at the field at Hill Roberts School, several tribesman lit a fire in the center of the sacred circle, after which Chief Walter Watso, leader of the Abenaki nation, opened the ceremonies by offering a wampum peace belt to Raymond "Looking Glass" Lussier of Attleboro, Massachusetts, chief of the Grand Council of Southern New England. Everyone was invited to be blessed with smoke from the fire and enter the sacred circle, where Wildcat, a 69-year-old Micmuc from Dartmouth, Nova Scotia offered a prayer and advice to his kinsmen before a celebration of native dancing. Wildcat admonished his fellow Indians that religion is not just for sacred ceremonies, but for every day of their lives. "Being an Indian is a spiritual ways to conduct our worship. Once you can respect a tree and the ground you walk on like another human being, then we will begin to be human beings" to one another.
