We should have know better than to keep chasing the approval of Euro-Americans. We need to
know concentrate on our heritage and keep the traditions alive for our children. I’m with you all
the way Luke.

"Jeff Benay said others have argued that having all bands go through the same recognition process is fair, but he contended that what's fair to the three bands is to acknowledge that they have proven themselves to the state and deserve outright recognition." (B.S.)
www.burlingtonfreepress Newspaper dated March 14, 2008:
"The three bands -- the St. Francis/Sokoki band in Swanton, the Koasek Traditional Band in southern Vermont and the Nulhegan band in the Northeast Kingdom -- have a long history in Vermont (more B.S.), said Jeff Benay, former chairman of the Governor's Advisory Commission on Native American Affairs, who helped negotiate the proposal."
www.nanews.org dated June 12, 1993:
"Jeff Benay, who is head of the Title IV Indian Education for Swanton schools, said his office has been inundated with phone calls for information on the book "Finding One's Way", a fictional account of a young Abenaki boy exploring his heritage as he grows up, and for more educational materials about Abenaki culture."
Democratic Senator Hinda Miller's Website~
From Rep. Hinda Miller's mouth quote, "I personally come from a tribe and we were too recog…, too much recognized in Europe. We had to wear yellow stars in national recognition of my lineage and tribe."
Rep. Hinda Miller is "self-identifying" as a Judaic woman. Abenaki and their descendants "self-identify" all the time. The Gay and Lesbian people "self-identity" as well.
And no.....I am not imply there a Jewish Conspiracy to take over the state of Vermont.
I strongly suspect there seemingly is an ever more apparent~blatantly and obvious "Abenaki Alliance conspiracy" to take over the State of Vermont's Abenaki Recognition Process + Abenaki Recognition Criterion and including the Vermont Commission on Native American Affairs as well.
If they can't have their way (Instant Shake and Bake State of VT Abenaki Recognition....any Historical-Social and most especially NO Genealogical Evidence of their clear and convincing evidence of connection to the legitimate Abenaki Historical Communities or people) the various persons connected to this so-called "Abenaki Alliance," such as Nancy Lee (nee: Millette) Doucet for example, will get up and throw a childish hissy-fit, use 'colorful foul language and stomp out of the room....like she did at the Committee meeting which was held on Friday, April 16, 2010.
Abenaki Recognition criterion NEEDS to be transaparent, fair and open for ALL Abenaki people within the State. ALL Abenaki Incorporations and "groups" (including the one Fred Wiseman and Luke Willard belong to) should not be creating the recognition criterion BEFORE VT State Recognition is given, just so their groups can ensure themselves an open door to official State of Vermont Abenaki Recognition.
Without a solid fair and transparent process and criterion for Abenaki recognition, it would be like "the weasels planning, building and installing the door to the chicken house coop!"
