The reason I am placing this divorce record on this blog is because NO ONE, neither adoptive parent, Howard Franklin Knight, Jr. nor his wife Minnie, nor the Judicial Judge in the matter NOT ONCE mentioned that the parties were of "Abenaki" "Cowasuck" or "Indian" Descent. Why not? IF these two parents of their grandson, were claiming as they have been in other documents in other events and situations, why weren't they claiming they were Cowasuck, from the Clan of this and the Clan of that, Chief this and Senior Advisor of the that?

Dear Mr. Bruchac;
Enclosed, as promised, is the complete copy of the booklet by Mariella Squire as you requested. She repeatedly steps over the line and she persists in her lies and half truths, plus plagerism and deceit when she doesn't get her way.
It is clear that she will not quit until a way can be devised to end her rampage, as a so-called Abenaki. It is clear that she, her sister Ann Squire, and the odd-balls of the Women's Hoop are trying to destroy all of us, at any costs; and these books are the way they will attempt to publish the failed effort the book you stopped from being published last year.
If I can help in any way, feel free to call upon me; and you are always welcome in my lodge.
Sincerely + Respectfully, Chief Howard F. Knight Jr.
