Nancy (nee: Millette) Cruger - Lyons - Doucet's “Petit Village de Rivière-du-Loup” of Yamachiche MYTH of March 30, 2007



I am a descendant of the Millette family of “Petit Village de Rivière-du-Loup” of Yamachiche. I have never been there only there only through the stories of my grandfather. He, as well as all Millette’s behind him are from Yamachiche area.
The things I was told about “Rivière-du-Loup” of Yamachiche;
That the large family of 16 children lived in a small house at Petit Village. They were very poor and sleep in cots above each other. The floor of the house was dirt and in the winter the snow would come into the bedroom at night. The boys would awake in the morning and look at tracks in the floor to see what came through visiting while they were sleeping.
My Grandfather’s brother would go out hunting each day for food for the family. He would leave each morning with his gun and one bullet. He would return each night with game. Sometimes, with as many as five rabbits but every time with his gun and one bullet. This puzzled the younger boys. They couldn’t figure out how he got game and still had his bullet. So one day the boys followed him and finally found out the secret was he used snares!
My Grandfather moved to New Hampshire in the States and he moved, got married and had children he was very poor. One of his brother’s back at “Petit Village de la Rivière-du-Loup” of Yamachiche worked in a mill and would send money or gifts for the kids for Christmas. My Grandfather always wanted to go home to visit so one time he got a babysitter so he and my Grandmother could go home to Petit Village to visit. When he got to the border they told him he could go in, but he could never go back to the States. I am not sure why. But had children back in New Hampshire so he never got to go home again. I am looking forward to going “home” and visiting in my Grandfather’s honor.
My Great Grandfather Christopher Millette came to New Hampshire after my Grandfather moved there. He was very upset about something that happened to his land and home at “Petit Village de la Rivière-du-Loup” of Yamachiche. He got a lawyer and was trying to file a suite against Canada. I am not sure all of the details but hopefully someday will find the records. I know he said Canada took his land while he was gone and he wanted it back.
When in the States my Grandfather was picked on for his accent and was often called “dumb Frenchmen” by drinking buddies which made him very mad! My Great Grandfather was a small man and one night a very large man called him “dumb Frenchman” and my Great Grandfather jumped up and hit the guy so hard he broke the guy’s nose and said “I ain’t NO Frenchman!!” He always said he was Indian.


In the summer of 2003, I stayed for three days at Odanak Reservation Canada with two elderly residents, the M’Sadoques sisters, who were in their late 80’s. I told them that my family was aboriginal from Yamachiche and asked if they knew anything of Petit Village de la Rivière-du-Loup” of Yamachiche.
This is the story they told me:
“Oh, Yamachiche, It is out there in the bush. Very isolated. The women in that tribe would walk to neighboring villages and pick out a nice handsome man to bring home with them. Once the woman was with child they would give the man the boot!! They made sure the aboriginal children were not fathered by family. AND I always wished I was Yamachiche!!”
Chief Walter Watso told me in the early 1990’s that the Petit Village de la Rivière-du-Loup” of Yamachiche as way out in the bush. No one would even go hunting out there without an Indian Guide. He said all the people in the village of Yamachiche were Aboriginal and their own tribe.

Signed Nancy Lyons (Millette) Date 3-30-07 [March 30, 2007]
Notarized State of Vermont Orange County 
At Randolph, this 30th day of March A.D. 2007 personally appeared Nancy Lyons and acknowledged this instrument by her sealed and subscribed, to be her free act and deed. Before me, Joyce L. Mazzucco
Notary Public [also Joyce is the Randolph, Orange County, Vermont Town Clerk & Treasurer]

My Commentary:
Recently, someone informed me that Carollee Reynolds - Matthews re-posted Nancy Millette's genealogy on Rootweb.com? 

Retrospectively-speaking, it was on August 01, 2008 that I had posted Nancy's genealogy up online, in varied genealogical forum website, such as www.genform.com, www.ancestry.com, and www.rootsweb.com, etc. Of course, she (Nancy) and her supporters/allies and 'members' of her group INCLUDING Carollee Reynolds herself, quite vehemently began to "smear me" and insinuate and "character assassinate" my person (even more so than they did in 2008) when I was on the Yahoo Message Boards "Olidahozi" and "Abenaki News Issues" etc, simply because of this blog's content and the questions I was asking (as of 2009 herein) of each and every one of them. Naturally, my putting up Nancy's genealogy for the first time, online, caused a outcry protest. Peggy Fullerton, and company made numerous complaints and protests to the above mentioned websites and Message Boards, demanding that Nancy's genealogical ancestors be taken off these sites that I'd mapped out. 

Now on March, 03, 2012 Carollee Reynolds did in fact (I see) indeed  re-posted Nancy Millette's genealogy up again, online. 

Here's the link.
http://archiver.rootsweb.ancestry.com/th/read/NA-ABENAKI/2012-03/1331296509

Obviously, after August of 2008, I have done much further research regarding Nancy's ancestors (so didn't Suzette LeClair, Paul Joseph Bunnell, etc.) and what did Nancy Millette-Lyons-Doucet, along with her cronies, do? 

Their actions and words speak for themselves eh. Suffice it to say, Nancy did not like the "exposure." Why was she so afraid, and hostile? Here's why.....

The late Nancy Lee (nee: Millette) Wiggins-Cruger-Lyons-Doucet concocted an unvalidated "STORY" about her Great-Grandmother Flora "Una Ana" [Eunice] Ingerson - Hunt being "born on some Littleton-Bethlehem or Jefferson riverbank"; and or raised in some mythical enchanted forested Jefferson-based "Abenaki Indian Village" et;. or that her Great Grandmother Flora Ingerson - Hunt learned the Indian "medicines" and "teachings" from her mother Almira (nee: Rines) Ingerson - Pollock....."  it was just.....

A myth? A story I doubt that even Joseph Bruchac could have imagined and authored.

But ...... WAIT JUST A MINUTE! Could I be mistaken? No, I think not.

How could Flora have learned the "Abenaki" "medicines" and or "teachings" IF her mother left that family, of that wee little girl, for another man [John Pollock] when the wee girl was just about 3-5 years old? How many "medicines" and or "teachings" of the "Abenakis" could Almira, Flora's mother, actually have taught her, if she wasn't even IN the picture, let alone the family, after the girl was 3 to 5 years old, that the little girl Flora Ingerson could have retained (remembered into her adulthood) eh? 

It is quite obvious that what the late (now deceased) Nancy Millette-Doucet had done was create her own self-created "Abenaki" "Koasek" PERSONA, based on a MYTH perpetuated desperately by her, since ca. 1993 when she'd got her hands and eyes on Joseph Bruchac's book entitled "Fox Song" [published on September 15,1993 by Philomel Publishing] 

"wherein depicts a child who treasures and finds comfort in the many things her Abenaki great-grandmother taught her before her recent death. One morning, clinging to her dream of being with Grama, Jamie recalls gathering strawberries together, making a birch basket, seeing fox tracks in the snow, learning a special song of welcome. At the end, Jamie goes to Grama's special spot, sings the song--and is rewarded with a glimpse of a fox, a reminder (as Grama once said) that she's not alone. A quiet, gentle story, warm with nicely chosen details of old and young sharing lore of the natural world; Morin (Orphan Boy, 1991) provides paintings with impressionistic backgrounds luminous with golden sunlight and more specific rendering of the people, the fox, and the special handmade things Grama left behind."

Did Joseph Bruchac take Nancy's concocted "story" and make it into a book BEFORE the first Littleton Street Vendor Event that Nancy organized in the fall of 1993 ... only to have it published in September 1993?

Or did the late Nancy (Millette) Cruger, then living in Bethlehem, Grafton County, New Hampshire, working as a 'Town Promoter' for the Town of Littleton, Grafton County, New Hampshire simply "cook up her own little Indian Story" regarding her own Great Grandmother Flora "Una Ana Ingerson" - Hunt MERELY BASED ON Bruchac's Fox Song book AFTER it was published, gifted or bought by her in the winter of 1993 or the Spring of 1994 before her Pow-wow at Remick Park, in Littleton, NH

I know she just couldn't wait to show "Chief" Homer St. Francis Sr. and "Tribal Judge" Mike Delaney ... her family picture, to them when she'd heard or found out, that they were handing out St. Francis/Sokoki of Missisquoi "Tribal Cards" to anyone that claimed that they were "Abenaki" or Indian. Even Mary Warren got one, and she wasn't even "Abenaki" either! 

Then again, I got one too, the previous October of 1993 while living in Washington State, that signed by "Tribal Judge" Mike Delaney, and they didn't even know my family, at all. Go figure. Making up "Abenakis" and "Abenaki" alleged "incorporation's/communities" every which way they could through the years since 1976...... that's what was going on!

How many "abenakis" today are genealogically legit; and how many were simply created out of thin air, based on a "Grandma Said So" dynamic, who got a "Membership Card" or became a "Chief of the Koasek" like Nancy Millette-Doucet did, based on the above 'stories' over the years?

"Una Ana" I surmise was another one of her concocted Indian-ization's. Flora's middle name was E-U-N-I-C-E, not "Una Ana" by anyone's far fetch imaginative ideations, EXCEPT in Nancy's mind

Let's say for the sake of argument, that the N.H. Death Record of Flora Eunice Ingerson - Hunt is factually correct, and that she was born on March 25, 1874 in Littleton, Grafton County, New Hampshire AND that she died on March 11, 1963 at the age of 88 years, 11 months and 14 days..... give or take a few years around "1874" .... just to be on the safe side of things.

That would seem interesting .... because her mother Almira (nee: Rines) Ingerson - Pollock was born on August 29, 1850 and died on February 05, 1880 in Littleton, Grafton County, New Hampshire at the age of 29 years, 5 months and 7 days.

So, can anyone guess how old Almira's daughter Flora actually was, at her mother's passing?

Flora was 5 years, 10 months and 11 days old when her mother Almira Pollock died. I know wee lads and lassie's at that particular age, don't have a mind to sit, stay still, or pay attention too much. They'd rather be hopping, skipping and jumping all over the place from one end of tar-nation to another, they are so filled with youthful energy and excitement. 

So it is, that it begs to be answered, what in the world possessed Nancy Millette to concoct such a 'story' that Flora was taught by her mother Almire, pretty much anything, when that very mother, left that child's father George W. Ingerson, when the child wasn't even 5 years old? 

Now, when Flora Ingerson - Hunt died on Mary 11, 1961, like I said she was 88 years, 11 months and 14 days old. 

How old was Nancy Millette when her Great Grandmother Flora passed away in Monroe, Grafton County, New Hampshire? 

Nancy was just 10 years, 1 month and 13 days old

Just the right time of growing up, to stop making up "stories" and begin knowing when what was coming out of one's mouth, was either the truth or not, to my thinking. Yet, according to Nancy, "she'd made a promise to her Great Grandmother Flora, to find her people." 

Seems to me, Nancy said she was in the room (or at least allegedly IN the house) in Monroe, N.H. with her Great Grandmother Flora, along with other family relatives, such as Rhonda Besaw etc .... so why go making promises to a dying Great Grandma to go "look for her people" when they were all right there, in the first place?! 

Rhonda (nee: Besaw) True says Nancy didn't get to Flora's home until AFTER Flora had passed away. But then again, Rhonda says her father SAID she (Rhonda Besaw) was alleged to be "Eastern Abenaki/ Penobscot" too. I have never heard this from anyone, but only from Rhonda herself. Not even her own mother mentioned or implied this down in Monroe, NH...

Who to believe, and on what merits --- Oral History? Vital Records? Historical Records? Dark (Black or Brown) hair color? Dark eyes? Dark Complexion? High Forehead? Nice white possibly 'shovel-head' teeth? Occupation? 

I do think someone been caught in a ____, from way back when, that started right about the summer of 1993 to my thinking and research. And it progressed and got bigger and bigger and bigger, until it was told so many times by the late Nancy Millette, that even she thought it was her truth! 

Now, looking at the above two-page notarized document from Nancy Millette herself, dated March 30, 2007 here is yet another MYTH or STORY, that would make even Joseph Bruchac envious I am sure. 

Even the Jack and Beanstalk or Mary had a Little Lamb can't compare to this one!

Nancy Millette-Cruger-Lyons-Doucet inferred that her Great Grandfather, Christopher Thomas Mallette-Millette was from “Petit Village de la Rivière-du-Loup” of Yamachiche. Christopher was born July of 1865 in Vaudreuil, Vaudreuil County, Quebec, Canada situated on the right bank of the Ottawa river, in Canada. He died February 15, 1951 in Woodsville, Grafton County, New Hampshire.

His father and his ancestors (going all the way back to Pierre Mallet-Maillet who was born July 01, 1629 in Saint Columbe, Saint Amalo, Bretagne, France, who married Marie Anne Hardy) NEVER were in the “Petit Village de la Rivière-du-Loup” of Yamachiche, nor were they Indians or Abenakis either. At all

So, since that is the genealogical reality regarding Nancy's late father's direct paternal lineage ancestry, then really what merit or validity does the notarized March 30, 2007 Affidavit actually have, when it was signed by Nancy Millette-Doucet on that date? 

And on another note of address herein, Nancy said in this notarized Affidavit of hers, that she wanted to (quote) "going home and visiting in my Grandfather’s honor." Per this March 30, 2007 Notarized Affidavit she herself signed.

Yet eight (8) days before this Affidavit was created by her, she'd released this news article to the media:


March 22nd, 2007
Meets South at Nawihla!
Nancy Lyons

The Koasek Abenaki Nation will host it’s first Native American Festival and Pow Wow on June 2 and 3, 2007 at the Woodsville Community Field, Woodsville, NH. The schedule includes over 30 arts and crafts venders, four drum groups, December Wind Native Folk Rock Band on Saturday night and a special guest performance each day featuring the Aztec Dancers from Mexico. A detailed time schedule will be available to the public in advance of the Pow wow.
The Luis Salinas and family Aztec dancers have performed all over the United States. They will do many dances and explain their culture and what the dances mean before each performance. The most exciting part of the show will be when they invite the public in the circle to dance with them on some occasions. They will end their performances with a traditional Fire Dance; one of the most outstanding Aztec dances.
The Native American Pow wow has been named Nawihla which in Abenaki means
“ I am returning home”. Haverhill and Newbury meadows have historically been the center of commerce for the Koasek Abenaki until the contact era. Back in historic times many other tribal nations would come to the meadows to trade with Abenaki by way of the Long River ( the Connecticut River). Nawihla will be a huge celebration welcoming the Abenaki and other Native People back home. It is especially an honor for Chief Nancy Lyons to return home with her people. Chief Lyons was born and raised in Haverhill and went to Haverhill Academy and Woodsville High School.
To bring back a glimpse of what life was like for the Abenaki in the meadows the El Nu Abenaki Tribe will set up a historic village complete with blanket trading and craft making demonstrations through out the weekend. The public will be welcome to visit the village and ask questions and even purchase some of the hand tooled items on the trade blankets.
Nawihla organizers have been working in partnership with other area business for the Native American event. Haverhill Alumni Hall will host a lecture with Trudy Ann Parker on May 30th. Trudy Ann Parker (Abenaki) is the author of Aunt Sarah, Woman of the Dawnland and Big Snow Little Snow. Aunt Sarah is a book about Trudy’s Aunt who lived to be 108 winters. Big Snow Little Snow is based on the logging day of the Connecticut River. On May 31st Joseph Firecrow, Northern Cheyenne Granny Nominee will perform a music concert 
at Alumni Hall.
Chief Nancy Lyons will be working with area schools on the possibility of featuring Fred Wiseman and his DVD Against the Darkness to area schools prior to the pow wow weekend. Against the Darkness gathers together, for the first time, an impressive array of genealogical information, historic objects, documents and photographs to refute this cleansing of Northeastern indigenous history. Using live action and voiceover by young Abenaki actors and the stirring music of songwriter Peter Buffett, this digital video inspires as 
well as informs.
The video footage has been carefully screened by over 100 American and Canadian Abenakis of all ages. Passamaquoddy, Penobscot, Wendat, Mohawk, Narragansett, Wampanoag, Pequot, Mahican and Euroamerican elders, scholars and filmmakers provided an "external" Native perspective. Their sage advice has been incorporated into the Against the Darkness System.
The events listed above have been sponsored by the Town of Haverhill, Nootka Lodge, Woodsville Guaranty Bank and Koasek Tribal Nation.


Really? I thought she stated that  “Petit Village de la Rivière-du-Loup” of Yamachiche was where her Indian ancestor's "home" was? Either she was confused, making stuff up, or simply needed to get her directions straight, as to where her "home" actually was. Last time I checked, her "home" was in Swiftwater (near Bath Twonship), in Grafton County, New Hampshire living at 45 Pioneer Park, with her husband, Mark E. Doucet! 

http://reinventedvermontabenaki.blogspot.com/2010/04/nancy-lee-nee-milette-doucet-vs-douglas.html

So which was it? “Petit Village de la Rivière-du-Loup” of Yamachiche or Haverhill, N.H./Newbury, Vermont? I'm sort of confused here (by what she was implying). That's two countries, and 218 miles apart from each other. If her ancestor's home (hypothetically) was, for the sake of argument, this Yamachiche, in Quebec, Canada, then how can she be a "Koasek" "Abenaki"? Secondly, she claimed her ancestors were FROM the Haverhill, N.H. - Newbury, VT areas. Sure, they moved up or down into those area's, from other geographical locations previously. That doesn't make her or those ancestors "Koasek" let alone "Abenakis" now does it?

And that DNA claim of her's by National Genographic after November 27, 2008, I think is just more of her nonsense and delusions. She claimed to be showing the Haplogroup Marker X.

Subject: no more bullshit
My DNA came in from national geographic. I am very much Native American and if I hear anymore bullshit I will be proving in court defamation of character and proof in front of a judge! I am sick of the bullshit from Salmon [Douglas Lloyd Buchholz], Paul Bunnell Paul Pouliot and Ray Lussier. Now I have blood and bone results they better be careful about what they have to say about me or they will see my records up close while sitting on stand in front of  a jury!!
talk later..nancy


Ok, so what does "that" mean?

The mtDNA Haplogroup X Project was opened in May, 2006 per FTDNA.com, as a resource for those wisHaplogroup X diverged from Haplogroup N more than 30,000ybp. It further split more than 20,000ybp into 2 main subgroups, X1 and X2. Haplogroup X is found in Europe, the Near East, Central Asia, North Africa and North America, and is believed to have migrated to the Americas about 15,000 years ago, making up a very small component of the Native American population (less than 3%). Bryan Sykes in his Seven Daughters of Eve book named this mtDNA haplogroup Xenia.hing to learn more about their Haplogroup.

So, again if it (the DNA testing) was so legit, then why didn't Nancy Millette-Doucet state and show the results of that DNA testing; and subsequently allow other's to independently evaluate, the alleged "testing results" and the merit of her claim(s) of being "Abenaki" or "Koasek" etc?

Here's what I previously stated on this blog, my thoughts on DNA testing in regards to Native Americans:

http://reinventedvermontabenaki.blogspot.com/2009/10/nancy-nee-millette-doucet-and-her.html

What was Nancy Millette doing? Fill in your answer._________________.  
(I know what I wrote down.)

The answer is, that it has no truth to it whatsoever, no standing, no merit, no validity and no truth to her Declarations, her created Oral Histories, her Proclamations, her stories .... whatsoever. Period. 

Her ancestor(s) did not go there, they did not live there, they did not visit there, and they did not come from “Petit Village de la Rivière-du-Loup.” If those ancestors did go there, live there, visit there, or leave from there, there would have been some indication historically-socially-and genealogically speaking. But it doesn't exist, because it never existed documentarily in the first place!

It only existed in Nancy's mind......yet again.

In the meeting of the Vermont Commission on Native American Affairs this previous November 2012 (or maybe it was the December meeting (this shit gets deep and deeper as they open their mouths!), Bernie Mortz sitting at the table, pontificating and proclaiming that the late Nancy Millette-Doucet had or has "done so much for the Abenaki Nation" blah blah blah, is just plain BS

She helped herself pure and simply said. In a lot more ways than I will say here.

Say I am wrong? .... I knew her for years too, at least since 1994. 

Sure, she organized a Pow-wow here and there since 1994. Big Deal. She was a promoter for sure, but a promoter of herself, first and foremost!

Sure she got to hob-nobbing with this and that politician (on both sides of the Connecticut River) and got the 3 or so then VT/NH State Governor's to sign her concocted Native American "Proclamations" every now and then, that were a dime-a-dozen, if you knew the right politician in either one's County, who knew the right door to go through/the right telephone to call, down in Montpelier VT or Concord NH. Big Deal.

But I have to ask, what did she actually do for an "Abenaki Nation, and" the "Abenaki People" on this side of the United State's border, for that alleged "Abenaki Nation" that does not exist anymore; except to ____ and ____ on her own ancestors histories! 

When the FACTS genealogically sat right there in the very Town Clerk's Office's that she'd lived in for years, and the township she was employed in for a number years as well? 

She wasn't crippled, she could have done the very same trip down to the Town Clerk's Office's and seen for herself the very same historical records, that I did find. ..... But she didn't. Why not? It was because she wanted to believe what she wanted to. Whether it was truthful or not, is up to interpretation eh. 

Yes, you heard me correctly boys and girls, "Abenakis" and all over here, and over there across the river in Vermont, I am SAYING that Nancy Millette was a story-teller, just like Joseph Bruchac and the rest of the gang of this concocted VT Indigenous Alliance composed of the four groups, that are now legislatively "recognized" by the State of Vermont.

I think and conclude that she, as well as the Bruchac's are inferring/implying and making up, that they are Abenakis, but based on what? 

MYTH, Story-Telling, Concocted "Oral Histories", that have not been SUBSTANTIATED, with any real historical documentation. Why? Because they are not Abenakis in the first place and never were Abenakis?

Where is the substantiation to their claims and statements, after all these years since 1974-1976? 

Nancy Millette-Doucet made her contemporaneous persona of being "Koasek" "Abenaki" with her stories about Flora Ingerson - Hunt; and when that didn't work, she tried the same old b.s. by telling another myth about her Great Grandfather Christopher Thomas Mallette-Millette and that “Petit Village de la Rivière-du-Loup” notarized nonsense in 2007. 

So what does that say about the late Nancy Millette-Doucet. And the company she kept, that being the Vermont Indigenous "Abenaki" Alliance, composed of Roger Sheehan's group, April St. Francis-Merrill, Luke Willard, Don Stevens Jr. and Frederick M. Wiseman etc.? 

If she was manipulating her own family historical record, to suit her created persona, of alleged being "Abenaki" what does that say about the people of whom she has kept company with as mentioned above, eh? Have they been manipulating the scholarly created data, to suit themselves? Have they been manipulating the VCNAA (Vermont Commission on Native American Affairs) to suit themselves? Have they been manipulating their data and membership list(s) with their State of Vermont Recognition Application(s) per each group, to suit themselves, to help themselves to a VT State Recognition that honestly does not belong to them? 

How about Senator's Hinda Miller and Vincent Illuzzi (to name just two here). Were they distorting and manipulating their involvement with these four groups historically and socially through the years, and then advocated for the Recognition of these groups claiming to be thee historical "Abenaki" Tribal Communities of Vermont?

How about Juilus Canns, was he manipulating as well? 

Frederick Matthew Wiseman, PhD? 

A perfect set of examples that comes to mind in regards to these alleged re-invented "Abenakis" of Vermont today and their scholarly data manipulation(s), are: the Wabanakus of Highgate Springs, Vermont Postcard; the Antoine Phillips Jr. RPPC; and the Four Indians of Alburg, Vermont ca. 1863. 

And now we can see another manipulation regarding Nancy Millette's genealogical background, making it up as she went along, assuming no one, like myself, would bother seeking the truth out.

These people, these "abenakis" of Vermont DEPEND on ignorance of the good Public and the honest Politician alike, to get away with what they have done, and continuing to do, or intend to do.

The rotten apples do not fall far from the rotten tree, as they would say.

Are you a critical discerning public and or an honest decent open-minded politician? 

Because apparently a whole lot of the public and the politician alike have been fed a lot of nonsense, with their eyes closed. Open them up, research the "Abenakis" who claim to be..... WHERE do their GENEALOGIES go to?.... how far back in time/generational-speaking? Why doesn't the VCNAA have a legitimate un-biased HISTORIAN and a INDEPENDENT GENEALOGIST on the Scholar's Panel having reviewed ALL of the Applications for Recognition from day one. Who helped create the Recognition Criteria in the first place? 

The Cherokee's aren't the only one's with a "Wannabiak" Epidemic, that's for sure!

Just my thoughts for the evening...... so back to work I go...... sometimes I will post here, and sometimes I will be working on my 'other' project (besides this blog content).....that is, my book on all of the research regarding the Wannabiak wji N'dakinna.
