NOTE: These are the Federal Census Records from 1860 to 1990. ANYONE can claim on the Census, that they are "Abenaki" or "Indian" WITHOUT ANY GENEALOGICAL EVIDENCE HAVING TO BE SUBMITTED BY THAT PERSON, TO SUBSTANTIATE those CLAIMS of those that SELF-IDENTIFY as "BEING ABENAKI", "NATIVE AMERICAN," OR "INDIAN."
Subsequently, the "JUMP" in the Federal Census Records for Vermont Counties, in those that SELF-IDENTIFIED as to their ALLEGEDLY BEING ABENAKIS/ INDIANS. The more people who claim to be Indians, per county, the MORE Federal Monies and Grants these Incorporations can possibly obtain, and the distorted "ILLUSION" of their representing "Abenaki Tribes" or "Abenaki Communities."

Exhibit 3
Summary of Indian Population in Vermont
as shown in Federal Census Reports
Notice that in Franklin County, Vermont in 1910 there are only 5 Native People's indicated. None in 1920. Only 3 in 1930. None in 1940 and 1950. One Indian in 1960, 9 Indians in 1970. Ten years later....in the 1980 Federal Census(after the group of people INCORPORATE in 1976 as the St. Francis/ Sokoki Abenaki - Abenaki Selp Help Association) all of a sudden in Franklin County, Vermont.....there are 422 alleged and reinvented "Abenaki Indians." In 1990, there are 584 self-identifying "Indians."
In other Vermont Counties, there is also the same dynamic of a seemingly increase in self-identifying "Indians" such as in Chittenden County, VT per the 1950-1960-1970-1980-1990 Federal Census. Notice that Arthur "Bill" William Seymore (including the Phillips Family) and other such families, etc come geographically FROM the Burlington, Chittenden County, Vermont area, BEFORE 1990.

....language family, linked intimately to the Penobscot, the Passamaquoddy, and the Malecite Indians nearby. In the seventeenth century, after several bloody encounters with settlers from Europe, most of the original Pennacook Indians of New Hampshire abandoned their homes and joined communities in Canada. Some wandered westward into the valley of the upper Hudson River, where they settled for a while.
New Hampshire has no special reservation lands for Indians, and no speical governmental agency exists to look after them and their needs.
Vermont is the home of over 200 American Indians, probably from tribes throughout the East as well as the rest of the country. There are no official tribal groupings registered in the state and no state agency concerned with Indian affairs.
Vermont's modern Indian citizens are not descended from the State's original inhabitants. Before the area was settled by Europeans, Indians from surrounding states made their homes in the Vermont hills, and valleys. Abnakis from Maine settled along one of the eastern rivers. Bands of Mahicans from New York state hunted in the southwestern and western sections and probably set up temporary settlements. The eastern edges of Vermont were occupied by Pennacook from.....

....New Hampshire and the southern parts by Indians from Massachusetts.
The 229 Indians listed in Vermont in 1970 represent a fourfold increase since 1960 and a sixfold increase since 1930. In 1900 only five Indians were listed in the state's population. Three-quarters of the Vermont Indians live in rural areas.
