March 26 to 28, 2010 Abenaki For Justice (Just-For-Us) Blog Posting's ~ Luke Andrew Willard's Threat's and Intimidation Email ~ Recent Nulhegan Recent Temper-Tantrum Posting's:

Yeah, he's such a good genealogist that he pinned the WRONG FATHER of one the Vermont alleged and reinvented chiefs (Luke Andrew Willard) and still has it posted. I wonder how long he spent doing the wrong guy's genealogy. LOL, Way to go, Trout, Salmon, Mark, Doug, whoever you are.

Hmm, it is rather contradictory for a person to go to so much time and trouble to uncover and expose the "truth" if one is also covering it up if and when it does not suit a particular end. That seems like a peculiar way of doing things and is in opposition to the statement put forth that the truth will be uncovered and told... well, is it going to be told in it’s entirety, or only in a selective version?
This is simply looking like just one more colonial cover up and "white washing" of the facts to me.
If someone is deliberately covering up native in a genealogy, any native and I don`t care if it`s Cherokee, Pima or Cheyenne, it`s still a cover up and is dishonest, no matter how you look at that!

Shouldn't that error be taken down or corrected by Douglas? Besides, if you're going to post someone's genealogy without their permission and against their wishes, shouldn't it at least be correct? Just my two arrows...March 27, 2010 6:57 AM

For all of you that claim Salmon is doctoring the genealogies being posted - show where it is wrong or doctored and show the proof of it. Just because you say something is happening does not make it so. He is human and as such he can make mistakes, but, I know for a fact he will correct any
research work he himself did if you can prove he made an error! He is also posting genealogies provided to him by others - if they are incorrect it is because the compiler made research errors - this is not something he has any control over! However, I think he would be willing to make note of these
errors as well as long as you can PROVE your claim.

Objection! If they are incorrect and the blogger has no control over it, then the blogger has no business plastering them on the inter net! Period. End of story.

And are you "seriously" telling me, that it then becomes the responsibility of the person who has had their genealogy "erroneous" and deliberately used, for nothing more then to make some idiotic point, are then expected to have to argue and "PROVE" these errors for the amusement of the public!

Are you kidding me!

How about this...let the Abenakis sort out who their own people are. There is no great mystery in who is and who is not an Abenaki descendant for us here and there is simply no reason, good or otherwise to be using any person...or their personal information as a weapon against them like this.

We already know who the pretenders are....do you think for even one minute that we need any help to figure that out!

No - I'm suggesting if people are gonna bitch about errors on Salmon's blog - don't insinuate with vague references, man up and state exactly what the

error is and show why you are certain it is wrong! That's the way to CORRECT errors. To do anything else is just playing "he said - she said" like a bunch of gossiping teens.

To Anon: I don't have permission from anybody to discuss the details of their personal business but I've seen the genealogy on Trout's site. I know the alleged and reinvented chief and I knew the chief's father....the guy listed isn't him - no ifs, ands, or buts about it.

I agree with Karen that it never should've been thrown up there in the first place and I have no doubt that steps are being taken right now to deal with that.

Perhaps that's why they've (Douglas Buchholz) been so quiet. But hey, what do I know? I don't think Trout (refering Douglas Buchholz) is trying to cover anything up...I think he's just getting bad information from a bad person...

Karen Mica said...
Perhaps if you had gone to Luke himself and gotten that information instead of posting erroneous or simply blatantly false information, to begin with, maybe you wouldn`t be having these problems now. Would you?
And keep in mind a tribal genealogy is "held in trust" by those who have seen them and did any work on them.
And I really do think that another thing should be factored into this whole genealogy situation being done on a personal web site deal. When someone is posting on sites like Roots Web or Ancestry etc, it is with the understanding by everyone there, that this is the accepted topic of discussion, thats why people go there.
But when you are putting a person`s entire genealogy on a personal site, and without their consent, even if that is being cloaked as "a public service" for no other reason then to cause harm, harass, defame, and with "Malicious Intent" cause emotional stress to any person and or, the entire family of this person for these singular reasons...
then I do believe a good Attorney would have a field day with it..,particularly concerning those legal terms such as " to cause harm" and with "malicious intent" which of course, as we all know, is the only reason this "other" blog even exists.
I have an ex sister in law who is the office manager for the largest and most publicized Law Firm in
New England, so if any of you who have endured this particular form of abuse would like to contact me via Private e mail, please do.
I would have no problem asking her for advice on how to best put an end to this kind of "public harassment" for any of you.

Why are you threatening this man with judicial harm?..., when all he is doing is putting out documentary facts. This is a genealogy that Mr. Buchholtz received regarding Mr. Willard from another Abenaki. And, since the records are obviously on the blog of this man, the records are in public
preview to the Abenaki community.
Therefore, the argument that you people are making, is not seeking the truth. If you truely are people of Abenaki descent, wouldn't you want the truth to be known? One has nothing to hide, if they are telling the truth!
Mr. Buchholtz probably would welcome a challenge, but it seems no one wants to counter him with what facts you say you have? Again, who is this Chief Willard's father? If Douglas has this wrong, show me the proof he is wrong??? Or can you???
March 27, 2010 9:46 PM
Karen Mica said...
There ya go, that's how rumors get started. Let me clarify a couple of points for you, first no one is threatening Doug with "judicial harm" I am simply going to ask a few questions for people who obviously feel that their personal lives have been violated "beyond a reasonable" measure and want to know if there is legal recourse. This is no threat, this is simply an inquiry, at this point.
Documentary facts?
Then I assume that he has signed and dated releases from all the people agreeing to be in staring roles, or any part of this documentary of his?
This is how it is, Doug has attacked or plans to attack, pretty much everybody.
Most of his "informants" have already seen their names as such, up on his blog. Which of them, do you suppose is eager for a repeat? And personally, my own opinion, it appears that his "helpers" are not Abenakis ( or very bad ones ) and care not, one way or another what the outcome of his blog is, or if people are emotionally distressed, upset or even seriously hurt over this (refering to Douglas Buchholz and this blog) "documentary" business. For instance, what if someone were to become so upset that they did permanent bodily injury to themselves? Or their family.

Apparently, unbeknownst to a lot of Vermonters, etc., people don't realize that in New England, supposedly (so the rumor goes...) there is like...this...umm.. suicidal "Jim Jones/ Jonesville Tribal" thing or some sort "Manson Family Cult" kind-of-dynamic going on in N'dakinna, of "Wanna-be Abenakis, who apparently are running around Vermont, etc., calling themselves the "St. Francis-Sokoki, Nulhegan-Coosuk/ Old Phillips Band, Elnu and Koasek Trad. Band of the Koas Abenaki Nation" (sshhh...allegedly Abenaki "Secret Societies"/ Tribes/ Bands)....and if these people get "too upset" (by apparently merely seeing, reading and reviewing their genealogical-social histories and historical records on this very blog) there is quite a worry and concern that these people will do permanent bodily injury to themselves or their families. 

So PLEASE don't LOOK or READ what is on this blog. I wouldn't want anyone to slit their wrist(s) or take a bullet, because allegedly these Alleged and Reinvented Vermont and New Hampshire Abenaki people were/ are too "sensitive," "emotionally distressed" or "upset" about what one reads or examines on this blog.


Or does anyone care about that? Does he? I don`t think any of these people do, seems like actually hurting others is fun and games for some folks, sick as that sounds to normal people. So watch for their names turning up on his (refering to Douglas Lloyd Buchholz, meaning me and this blog) "documentary" as well, and do yourself a favor...just avoid them too. And I will say again, if you want any information on or about Luke Willard, then ask him.
And just out of curiosity, why are "assuming" that it was Luke's father that is at issue here?

Douglas Lloyd Bucholz's blog has violated invasion of privacy laws, and in some cases, slander and defamation laws. A lawyer's office has already looked at his blog and said so. The problem is MONEY. Most Abenaki people don't have any! A free lawyer is needed, or someone with money needs to come forward to help.

Salmon (Douglas Lloyd Buchholz),
Take my children's information off of your damned website or there will be serious problems. My children are minors and I WILL NOT stand for this. I will see you put in prison where you belong if you don't take all my records down from your site. Skip Bernier gave you the hand written documents
from my aunt Janice... I know that. Where you came up with the other stuff is beyond me. It's all fake crap that has been created to advance your agenda and make me look bad. It isn't working.
You take my kids info off now, man. I'm not kidding.
Preying upon little ones? Are you that low? Leave my kids alone.

Mr. Luke Andrew Willard,

Do not communicate with me further in any way whatsoever Luke Willard. The records on my blog are a matter of public record, in Vermont, and within the Abenaki Community as well. Your demands and threats mean nothing to me. Skip Bernier did not provide me with these documents whatsoever. That is your assumptions Mr. Willard. Perhaps Mr. Bernier gave these particular documents to someone else within the Abenaki Community(?), who evaluated my blog(?), and thereafter thought wise to share with me these documents pertaining to an alleged and reinvented
Vermont "Abenaki" Chief. Again, these documents have been obviously in the public/ "Abenaki Community" floating around in other people's possession for some time now, way before I ever received such documentations in the mail.

I heard tell, that Ralph Swett got possession of your "tribes" records stored in some "unpaid for" Storage Unit in Orleans County, Vermont? Maybe Ralph Swett sent these documents to me? Vital Records from 1909 to 2008 are online and a matter of Public Record. These records are not certified; they are not usable for "identity theft" or otherwise meant to harm anyone.

If you have a problem with me, I strongly suggest that you have your attorney send communication(s), and due review of such communication(s), my attorney will address the matter with me, and with your attorney and you.

I will forward this communication to the Vermont State Police and the local Police Department here, and also to my attorney forthwith. This is all I will say to you Mr. Luke Andrew Willard. Thank you for your concern, yet I will not remove the documents off from the site, without a Court Order to do so.

Then a court order, it shall be. You are the lowest form of life... a truly heartless individual that cares not about anyone but yourself. I wish I wasn't Abenaki, because I never would have met the likes of you. I will defend my family and I will see you in court.

P.S. Ralph didn't purchase any Nulhegan records... I have them safe and sound.

Evil things happened in Montpelier, Vermont today (Friday, April 16, 2010). What can you expect from a legislature that made it a "priority" to protect the feelings of transvestites? Soon, you will be able to marry your dog and your sister at the same time...but Vermont Abenakis will NEVER be recognized....FORCING our artisans to be criminals for selling their crafts as “Abenaki Made”. Shame upon these “lawmakers”.
Fri at 9:39pm

These groups of alleged and reinvented Abenaki (and Mohawk) remind me of a child who is asking for a glass of Soda Pop (which isn't appropriate for a child anyway....yet the child will keep asking and demanding it anyway)....is handed a glass of milk instead....the child takes the milk, looks at it and in a fit of rage....throws the glass/ cup to the floor and proceeds to destroy anything in that child's area....and then stomps away in a thrash-about temper-tantrum of a pout, because the child didn't get what the child wanted/ demanded. If the child can't have what the child wants, the child becomes destructive.

What does a person's sexuality (i.e. homosexuality, heterosexuality, or being a transvestite have anything to do with Abenaki Recognition in Vermont?....sounds like "malicious homophobic hatefulness" to my thinking....Mr. Professor Frederick M. Wiseman of Swanton, Vermont also retrospectively-speaking also made this comparative on Vermont Public Radio as well)

April 13, 2010 Abenaki Pride: Setting the Record Straight Postings:

On April 13, 2010 3:46 PM Rhonda Besaw said...

Your email was passed along to me at the Health Department. The Vital Records' Office is located within the department and we work closely with the Secretary of State's Office regarding the access and availability of the birth, death, and marriage certificates.
Vermont is one of a few remaining states that have their birth and death certificates as public records. Most recently, Puerto Rico and Maine passed laws to limit access to their certificates. At this time, only four states have no restrictions on access to birth certificates: Vermont, Massachusetts, Ohio, and Kentucky. (There is a bill pending in MA to limit access in their state.)
The vast majority of states consider their certificates as closed records, meaning that access is limited to the person, family member, or legal guardian. In some states, the certificates revert to open record after a specific number of years after the event (e.g., 50 or 100 years). In Vermont, the statutes allow anyone to access and receive a copy of any other person's birth or death certificate - no questions asked and no proof of identity or tracking.
Therefore, I'm required by statute to allow these certificates to be accessible to anyone that wishes to see them or obtain a copy. Various organizations have accessed and made copies of a town's birth and death certificates, such as the Genealogical Society of Utah and Ancestry.com. At this time, most of Vermont's birth, death, and marriage certificates are accessible at the Ancestry.com web site. This is legal and we do not have the authority to request that a person or organization remove images of Vermont's certificates.
I agree with you that access to the certificates with no limitations and lack of proof of identity or tracking creates a risk for individuals and families. Our primary concern is that anyone in the world can request a certified copy from Vermont, which contains all of the information, as well as the state seal and signature. A certified copy is used for legal purposes - proof of citizenship to access state and federal benefits, application for a U.S. Passport, etc. It would be very difficult for a person to create a certified copy based on the image from a web site, but very simple for a person to create or modify a certified copy that they are holding in their hands.
We are preparing a report for the Vermont Legislature that describes these potential fraud issues, as well as recommendations for improving the efficiency of vital records' management. We hope that the report will be released soon and that we can discuss the opportunities for improving the security of these certificates in the 2011 legislative session. We are aware that members of the Legislature share our concerns.
Please let me know if I can help with any additional questions.

email from Richard McCoy, State of Vermont Dept of Health regarding vital records:

Yes, please feel free to share this information with other parties. I receive similar questions each month and most people are surprised to learn that these records are available to anyone. It is helpful for the public to know about these certificates and how our state law differs from other states. If additional questions come up, please feel free to forward them.
Race and ethnicity data on vital records' documents are not very accurate, especially on death certificates. In the past, many people would automatically mark "white" or would make a judgment based on the appearance or name of the person. We rarely utilize the race data from those older certificates since we know it is typically poor quality. In recent years, we have asked that greater care be taken in completing this information. For example, we have asked funeral directors to ask the next-of-kin which race/ethnicity would the person have considered themself, rather than make a decision based on his/her appearance. Also, we have expanded the list of races from the original five to a list of 15 options. This has helped slightly. But yes, those old certificates should be considered carefully before making a determination based solely on the race information.
We are hoping to speak with members of the Legislature this summer, so please feel free to check in with me around July or August to see if those preliminary discussions have occurred. We consider this an important issue to address, especially since there are now a few states that are refusing to accept copies of Vermont birth certificates unless my office provides them directly.
If you need additional information for any of your discussions or letters, please don't hesitate to ask. Thanks.

The "defensiveness" of Rhonda Lou (nee: Besaw) True....and these Alleged and Reinvented Vermont and New Hampshire Abenaki, in the exposure of their genealogical documentation, social histories and documented historical records on this blog simply shows and provides the public evidence, that these groups, their "Chiefs" and so on, are not who these people claim to be.

These groups are solely responsible for their own legal approach to the State of Vermont and or New Hampshire governments, claiming that their groups are legitimately "Abenaki" and that their Incorporations legitimately represent the Abenaki populations in either Vermont or New Hampshire, geographically-speaking.

Their genealogical records, including their vital records, their social histories, and historical records ought to be placed out in the PUBLIC RECORD and not "hidden in plain sight" as these groups have repeatedly claimed that their ancestors were "hiding" for generations upon generations. The FACT, that these people have communicated with the State of Vermont Vital Records in their attempts to have the State of Vermont Vital Records have me remove Vital Record images from this blog (because the factual records of their ancestral histories and everything else on this blog THREATENS their lies and deceit. This blog content EXPOSES the FALSE FOUNDATIONS upon which these "Abenaki" incoporations have been).

These groups know this, I know this.

Through this blog, the PUBLIC in Vermont and New Hampshire will know this as well.

Created regalia, smiles and annumal Pow-wow events will not suffice anymore to make one legitmately "Abenaki" and neither will self-proclaimed declarations of ...."just look into my eyes and say that you are Abenaki" is not good enough anymore. Not when the "game" rules has been changed. No longer are these groups willing to simply be. Now these groups demand official State of Vermont and New Hampshire Recognition (and everything else that goes with it such as Federal/ State Grants, ICWA and IACB funding). These groups want and demand to have the same standing and foundation as legitimate bonefide historically-documented Native Communities. These groups of Alleged and Reinvented Abenaki groups (who have incorporated *under State Law) are no longer "Sovereign" Nations as they purport that they are, claiming to be allegedly "Abenaki Tribes" and/ or "Bands". No longer can these groups "hide" behind their created "stories," "myths," "Grandma-Said-So-Stories....," and their "proclaimed "Grandpa or Great-Grandma's death-bed funerary 'whisperings' that one's ancestry is alleged Abenaki." The "I am Abenaki" (without having the genealogical-social-and historical foundation) fantasies are over, fini, done and finished. These groups, who have approached the U.S. Governmental States or Commonwealth's have changed the "rules of the game" their groups have played since the mid-1970's. It is time, that these alleged and reinvented VT and NH Abenaki's either show and provide the clear and convincing evidence, or else be exposed for the realities in which they have thrived, deceived, and manipulated in, against the legitimate Abenaki ancestors and descendants who lay in and walk upon this land N'dakinna.

WHY are these groups so threatened and afraid of their own genealogical records, their own social histories and historical records from being shown and provided to the Vermont and New Hampshire Legislature's, and to the PUBLIC? Their "defensiveness" "their libelousness" and very likely "slanderousness" as well, are very indicative of hiding the seemingly apparent reality that these groups of alleged and reinvented Vermont and New Hampshire Abenakis, have lied about themselves (and their ancestral connections to the legitimate Abenakis), culturally mis-appropriated Abenaki Cultural language and materials, including Abenaki Burial remains & funerary goods.

Indeed, "someone" NEEDS TO ASK themselves, WHY is it that this "defensiveness" even exists in the first place from these alleged and reinvented Abenaki incorporations and groups? The Truth is the Truth. The Lies and Deceptions are just that......

Let's think about this a minute (or two...) IF race, ethnicity, or "color" data on vital record documents are not very accurate, especially on death certificates....and thus a vital record indicating "White" or "Caucasion" is not very accurate....then so too does the same principle/ or rule of thinking apply, for when a vital record indicates a person is "colored," "le sauvage," "Indian," or "Native American." If one uses the conclusion that such information on vital records "over a span of generations" for the same familial lineage, is not accurate information (in the record stating the person is "White") then the SAME CONCLUSIONS of thinking MUST APPLY to those Birth, Marriage and Death Vital Records that indicates a person is alleged "American Indian" (such as Homer St. Francis Sr. Death Certificate, even "Blackie" Lampman's Death Certificate or even Thomas Henry Cass' Death Record). These people can't have it both ways, one way and not the other; either the Vital Records informaion as documented on the Vital Records for their ancestors and themselves is valid or it isn't.

So, it is interesting that factually and documentarily-speaking, these groups and their alleged "Chief's"/ hmm pardon me, "Speaker's" would contact the State of Vermont Vital Records "to complain" about the contents of this blog. According to Frederick M. Wiseman of Swanton, Franklin County, Vermont......"this blog is a great resource." Then again, his words will ONLY APPLY up until the time that his own genealogical records are posted on this blog.

Indeed, the whole process of this blog will very likely expose the reality of Abenaki Cultural mis-appropriation to persons and groups of people who have merely incorporated *under State Law, and who are not even Abenaki in the first place.

Frederick M. Wiseman & Co. can imply that this blog content and commentary is just a matter of merely perpetuating "Lateral Violence." Or is it simply these groups stating this "lateral violence excuse" yet another attempt to deny their own factual genealogies, social histories, and historical records for what it truthfully has been and is? Are these groups attempting to "hide" their appropriation of a Abenaki cultural heritage, language and identity that honestly may not even belong to their ancestors and themselves? One has to wonder.....

The pathetic reality and truth of all of this....is that it is these persons and groups own genealogical record documentations, social histories and historical records are what will prove to be the factual documentary TRUTH.
