Howard F. Knight Jr. June 01, 1985 Chief's Log Page; March 1993 Pages 13 to 23 Chiefs Log Authored by Howard Franklin Knight Jr:

June 01, 1985
@ 12:15 PM
A. Norwich, Vermont at the Farmer's Market. Howard F. Knight Jr. ran into John Scott Moody, the researcher for A.S.H.A. [Abenaki Self-Help Association Incorporated] of Swanton. Exchanged pleasantries then he told me not to anger Jim Medor of A.S.H.A. as dangerous foe, even to my life.
B. Agreed with me that evidence now shows considerable settlements of Abenaki at "Pompy", Thetford Center (just south of bridge and back up into Swanee Bean and in Vershire and Newbury. Thetford settlement as early as 1704.
C. Need to do following to get Federal Recognition;
1. Prove these families that are majority part American Indian going back to earliest known times in and around Thetford, ones that lived prior to arrival of Whiteman and who remained taking basically Whiteman's ideals. Look at following;
a. History of Family Troubles: Alcohol, trouble with Law, Anti-Social Behavior, Juvenile Delinquency.
b. Such families considered outcasts, such as Manning's, Pero's, etc, Knight, etc.
2. Establish Genealogy for 1/64th or more.
3. Work very quietly and keep at it.
4. Consider the families who still live basically their own style outside main stream society and have since early days - continuity of families in area.
5. Just don't anger Swanton - things will work out in time. Clear any major project with Swanton or else. I could get hurt very bad or worse. I asked if I was being threatened. He [John Moody] made it very clear "Blackie" [Leonard Miles Lampman] nor Homer [Homer Walter St. Francis Sr.] accept any bullshit as Swanton's the main place of business as it applies to Abenaki issues - I best to remember it.
I am SHOWING and PROVIDING but a very small fraction of the documentation I have in my possession ... that have been "outsourced" to other people. These documents came from within this so-called "Abenaki Community" [these various Incorporation's throughout New England] so please, do not assume that these historical/hysterical "Abenaki" documents, were "stolen" from either Howard F. Knight Jr. nor from his sidekick buddy/cronie Paul Wilson Pouliot in the past. I can legally, in a Court of Law SHOW and PROVIDE the evidence, and substantiate these documents are not obtained by illegal means. These documents were given to my person legally and without hesitation by various persons associating themselves with these "Abenaki" incorporation's, who claim to be Abenaki Tribes.
It is time (sooner than later, yet as time allows) that these revealing "Abenaki" documents come to the awareness of the general public of VT and NH etc. I will be putting a chronological string of a portion of these documents on this blog presently, yet do not assume that I have merely and only these documents. I have a lot more of these "Chief's Logs" from Howard F. Knight Jr. etc; and much more than these particular documents. Eventually, I will place ALL of these documents onto this blog. Please be patient, as I continue to place the documents on the blog.
06 March 1996 [1993?]
09:00 hours
Spirit Wind called [Robert Maynard] - All is well, no happenings, evidently Arthur Marchand is quiet.
1500 hours - Spirit Wind called. Paul Wilson Pouliot called earlier, and he and Paul discussed many things. It is the 1st time Spirit Wind felt that Paul was fairly open with him.
1. Paul Pouliot admitted that he is very slow. Also he feels maybe it is time for the Tribal Band to split and a 2nd group to be formed here in Vermont (Paul may have said it "Tongue in Cheek", but when Spirit Wind quickly agreed, Paul kind of stepped back to some degree. Paul may yet go with the formation of a 2nd Coos group, but under me, my leadership.
2. They discussed other methods of getting things done, to include a letter to the Governor of Vermont regards that we are here (the Coos) and a moderate alternative to the Swanton group led by Homer St. Francis. Also,
3. He (Spirit Wind) and Paul talked about my contacting Vermont Representatives regarding Alternative to Homer and our willingness to establish talks.
4. Paul will write a letter to Governor Howard Dean regarding the Coos. Also, he will consider splitting the Coos into at least 2 groups.
5. Spirit Wind [Robert Maynard] and I then discussed the possibility of a Coos Confederation, how it would work and representation; also, how Homer St. Francis Sr. would act (NOT VERY GOOD but Tough Shit).
Page 12.

06 March 1993
6. Also he and I discussed about Inc. and formation of a Coos Legal Division that would include a Legal Dept. with a Prosecutor and a Defender, Paralegals and a Court with a Chief Judge and two Associate Judges. Spirit Wind likes the idea. Once this is done, we could solicit $$ Donors; we both agree this is a necessity. With good funding from reliable sources, we'd be in real good shape.
7. We discussed hose who would come with the new Coos Band; Approximately 125 people.
Knight - Green Turtle Clan
Maynard - Holbrook - Black Turtle Clan
Seymour - Bear Clan
Garfield - Bear Clan
Pero - Deer Clan
Palmer/ Manning -
Carter -
8. We then discussed the composition of a Tribal band and Nation plus a Confederacy. We have the Ability of being a separate entity-Nation.

(06 March 1993)
@ 23:17 hours
Called and talked with Liz Smith (Whispering Wind) in Placerville, California. We discussed George Dealey.
1. Yes, he has been observed loading a vehicle.
2. He is known to have the following weapons.

A. An Auto Pistol
B. 2 16 gauge shotguns (Police type)
C. An automatic weapon (fully Auto)
Page 13.
06 March 1993 - Continued
D. A Heavy Rifle
E. She believes it to be a Long-range .308 with a 5 or 6 power scope
F. He is not in jail as was told by Roger "Running Elk" Desharnais

3. He is known to be an excellent shot.
4. He is still ripping-mad at me [Howard F. Knight Jr.] and I am going to pay. She knows he is wrong in his attitude. "towards me". "He has only himself to blame as he is a Liar, a Thief and a Pervert."
5. On thing the cop's don't realize is that somewhere he has learned to use Oriental long blade swords and he does know how to use them, as well as knives. She stated, "Chief Howard, once I find out he's gone, I'll let you know; PLEASE, once he's gone, WATCH YOUR BACK, THIS SORRY PERVERT IS DANGEROUS. HE WANTS YOUR HIDE". "HIS FRIENDS IN MASS. have him wound up Like a Rubber Band." Bright Eyes also pleaded that I be very careful.
6. She stated, "I told Dealey that you didn't take his G---- D----d Tipi, but he called me a Liar." We agreed that she would have known since she was the one that took me and Ambassador Running Elk and Descharnais to the Airport. [Specifically, Howard F. Knight Jr. is referring to "going out to El Dorado County, CA or San Francisco, CA with Descharnais, a representative for Homer St. Francis' group, for the Sherrie Devee-Jinks-LaBatt Child Custody/ Kidnapping legal "situation" in the previous September 1992 ... wherein Homer St. Francis Sr. of Swanton, VT and Howard Knight Jr. of Newport tried to use that Judicial situation, that they themselves "cooked up" together "an alliance with each other", attempting to use the Indian Child Welfare Act to "recognize" their "Abenaki Nation" "Abenaki Tribes" etc of Vermont...through the Judicial Altercation(s) Scotten and DeVee were having regarding their perspective spouses and children with the State of California] She knew what we took. Dealey has jumped her and he's accused her of taking his Tipi.
7. Liz's husband prevented Liz from being clobbered by George Dealey when he went there about his Tipi and his "junk".
8. Regards Sherrie A. Devee - she left Tuesday for Oregon - She has gone.

06 March 1993 - Continued
9. Terri Scotten in and out of jail, out on bail and she has a ball-busting lawyer who won't back down. Terri has a fair to good chance of not going to jail, also her lawyer has picked up on the Coos cases and added Genocide to the list of charges against the Abenaki people by the State of California. He is causing quite a stir out there. As she said, "He's a ball buster".
10. Her lawyer had to narrow the case to only the specific tribe Terri belongs to, by Federal Court Judge's order.....
According to the Incorporation "Northeast Woodlands - Coos Band - Abenaki Republic - Algonkian Confederation - Pisowakamigw Wobanakiak's" "Tribal Rolls" Membership list:
Page No. 10 12/04/92
Terri C. Scotten
Membership Card: Card Number: 649
DOB: 09/07/1955
Address: 3188 Carson Road
Placerville, California 95667
Terri C. Scotten and her family became members of this Incorporation claiming to be the Cowasuck Abenaki Tribe within Vermont led by Howard F. Knight Jr., in about mid-1992 probably about the same time as did Sherrie Devee-Jinks-LaBatt and Paul Wilson Pouliot's immediate families.
....(means the Coos of the Abenaki Nation - they dropped the Abenaki Nation out of the case).
11. As to Barbara_Z-., she has disappeared.
12. Ed, the Medallion maker, He died. He was all eaten up with Cancer. His gall-bladder burst. He lived only about 1-2 hours after surgery. He never knew what exactly was wrong and he didn't suffer very long. He died 2-3 weeks ago. She didn't go to his funeral as she prefers to remember them the way they were.
13. Discussed Roger "Running Elk". She believes he was not honest. Definitiely, Terri should have had her or I awakened and he would not have been able to get away with his crap of forcing her to go.
14. Sherri DeVee, all she will say is that if she comes to Vermont (or New England) we watch out. She is not mad at me but she is mad at Arthur Marchand, his friends and the St. Francis/Sokoki Abenaki Amb. [Ambassador] for Homer St. Francis, Roger "Running Elk" Descharnais of Massahcusetts. I explained regards Arthur J. Marchand.
Page 15.
She said good but, the Amb. (Roger), if she comes East, wish she hadn't. She now knows that he was trying to screw me as the Chief he'll pay dearly. She may go to his house and present herself, to his wife as his wife from California. She'd "wring it (the truth) out of him; if need be, of his conspiracy with DeVee and Wisehawk [Arthur J. Marchand] even before Roger and I came out there. She now realizes that the remarks of "not bothering the Chief w/ the details" meant about the plans to come East by DeVee. Also, Roger Descharnais and Wisehawk discussed DeVee and Terri Scotten coming East while we were there, but at 1st she didn't put it together due to her only hearing bits and pieces of the various conversations. Also she is aware of Roger and Arthur and his lady friend being in contact with DeVee after she came back but never concerned with Terri Scotten who has took [sic] the wrap, and she has told all she knows to the El Dorado County authorities and some Federal agents (she doesn't know if they were FBI or what). Roger, Arthur and his friends are the hook. I'm not.
Roger (per the telephone bill) called Swanton two or three times while we were there. What was said, she doesn't know. Made them after I went to bed.

@1900 hours
Called Roland Demers. Discussed getting Recognition for Coos, and associated bands only, from Becancour (W8linak). He stated:
1. He has but R. Price in place re: Coos and he (Price) is out of the picture. Has even apologized for the ruckus stated by him in November.
2. He plans to push to get a NEW Document from Becancour that empahtically states that they recognize all Abenaki, especially the Cowasuck (Coos) and Allied Bands.
3. He feels that Paul Wilson Pouliot, Robert Maynard and I Howard F. Knight Jr., plus Paul [Paul Rene Tamburro] should be at any meeting he can set up. He will definitely skew the Declaration towards the Coos; Homer St. Francis Sr. be damned.
@09:15 hours
Talked with Spirit Wind [Robert Maynard]. Discussed California call to Liz Smith by me. He feels this nails Roger "Running Elk" Descharnais. He thinks it is funny re: Liz showing up on Roger's doorstep and saying she's his Calif. wife. He hopes it comes about. Roger's wife would go Ballistic and he would be out the door hoping the door didn't hit him in the ass.
@13:00 hours
Tom "BlackCrow" called. The Beaver Clan of the Winooski are pulling back from the Swanton Group due to the Becancour Resolution, even to pulling out and dropping membership w/ Swanton, those that are registered w/ Swanton - @1/4 of the Beaver Clan.
1. They are now asking that the Cowasuck (Coos) extend to the Beaver Clan and Winoooski Tribal Band recognition-Officially.
2. That I be the assigned Diplomatic Representative to the Winooski from the Coos.
3. In return, I am to advise the Coos Council and all bands of the Coos and all Clans, as of now, they will
Page 17.
07 March 1993 - Continued
extend Diplomatic Recognition from them to the Coos.
4. They are pulling same from Homer St. Francis Sr. and the Swanton Group and from Odanak and giving it to Becancour.
5. They will follow the recognition (Oral and written) with written recongition from them. Tom "BlackCrow" will come here one night (and put it all in writing)
This coming week. Wants me to check and see if it is agreeable to the Coos Council ASAP. I promisted him I would do so. I made it clear that I didn't know what the response would be as to their requests, but I promised again to at least let Chief Spirit Hawk Paul Wilson Pouliot know.
6. The Beaver Clan of the Winooski plan to issue a letter-Resolution of Recognition of Arthur Bill Seymour as the only Chief of the Missisquoi. If Homer St. Francis Sr. doesn't like it. Tough Cookies. He (Black Crow) will get Bill's [Arthur William Seymour?] full name and address when he comes over.
7. They also feel we should develop Articles of Assoc. for the rebirth of the old Coos-Winooski-Pennacook Alliance (this subject could be broached in the formal Document of Recognition if it is possible).
8. They plan to Formally recognize Becancour and ask if our Emmisary could arrange their recognition of the Beaver Clan of the Winooski at the same time that we plan to do so.

13:38 Hours
Called Spirit [Robert Maynard] re: Tom Black Crow i.e. Telecom.
Spirit Wind is estactic with the prospect of the implications. He plans to call and let Paul [Paul Rene Tamburro and or Paul Wilson Pouliot] know and they discuss how the Coos will proceed.

22:31 hours
Damned if it not be Spirit Wind. He called and he did call and talk to Paul [probably "Spirit Hawk" Paul Pouliot]. They have discussed a Confederation of Coos by various bands such as;
1. The Coos of So. N.E. [Southern New England] - directly under Spirit Hawk [Paul Wilson Pouliot].
2. The Coos of No. N.E. [Nothern New England] - H.F.K. [Howard Franklin Knight Jr.] (Reactivated Retired Chief).
3. The Coos of S.E. [South Eastern] Townships Quebec - R. [Roland] Demers
4. The Coos of Calif. [California], Ore. [Oregon] and Nev. [Nevada] - Nickles
5. The Coos of the So. U.S. - Lynn Sherman
All under the Grand Chief of the Coos Council of North America. Additionally, I would be brought out of Retirement and be the Active Band Chief of the Coos of No. N.E. [Northern New England] and Ambassador to the St. [State] of VT. [Vermont] and S.E. Quebec. Suddenly, Paul Pouliot is favorable to the idea, except the Grand Chief (idea to be sprung on him).
Spirit Wind [Robert Maynard] discuss w. Spirit Hawk [Paul W. Pouliot] how we got involved in the 2 Fed. Ct. actions and who has just re-activated the Calif. Case and modified it for Genocide. He also briefed him how Arthur J. Marchand got us into the mess due to jealosy and how we straightened it out w/ the result that now DSS-Mass [Massachusetts State Department of Social Services] is on the verge of recognizing the Coos and Allied bands of the Pennacook and the Winooski and (thereby it is not my fault. Paul Pouliot is now looking at me in a very different light. Clearly, Paul has a different outlook, to a degree, then he had earlier.
Page 19.

My Response:
As one can review from the above documents, which are a fraction of the documents regarding Howard F. Knight Jr. that exist (and which will be placed on this blog in due time, the man retired, re-actived, stepped down, and retired again repeatedly throughout the 1990's. Always creating an excuse or concocted reasoning to place himself in the position of POWER (Chief, High Chief, or Grand Chief) the "Chief" of the alleged and re-invented Abenakis, no matter the geographical location(s) were simply making up Corporations using the names Cowasuck, Abenaki, Winooski, Missisquoi, and even Pennacook in an attempt to attach themselves (as Inc. Presidents turned Chiefs and their followers turned solicited Tribal memberships) to Abenaki Ancestry they didn't have. Certainly, these were making up Abenaki Culture and claimed heritage to the historical Abenakis without a shred of awareness of just what that Abenaki Culture or heritage actually was. Paul Wilson Pouliot, Paul Rene Tamburro and Robert Maynard were actively associating with Howard F. Knight Jr. created and manipulatively and deceptively against others, and even against each other. Howard F. Knight Jr. seemingly has a paranoid streak in his personality as well. Paul Pouliot also had a paranoid dynamic to his personality too, so I have heard.
Abenaki "Culture Vultures" with their many Corporate-created state-sanctioned "Abenaki" Club's, I would suspect these "Chief's" had every reason to keep looking behind their shoulders all the time, and be paranoid. Their deceptions, their distortions and their dishonesty was their Boogie-Man Monster-Under-Their-Bed's that these Chief's were afraid of.
Who would have thought back in the early 1990's that it would be a "Wannabe-Abenaki" BLOG such as this, that will be full of their own hysterial (oops, "historical") and enduring "Abenaki" Corporation and Related Documents, (that these "Chief's" created by FRAUD) that would haunt these self-proclaiming "Chiefs", "High Chiefs" "Hereditary Chiefs" and or "Grand Chiefs"? Where is the "Cowasuck High Sheriff" when you need one? These people ought to be arrested and put away (incarcerated) for their created and perpetuated lies, deceitfulness, and being the Abenaki/Wabanaki "Culture Vultures", against the Abenakis that these Corporation's have been all along!
