Really? Donna Carvalho who TOOK the maiden name of her own mother, Lillian Dorothy (nee: Roberts) Carvalho - Green who (this Lillian Roberts died 10 Oct 2012 in Florida), claims to be an Abenaki mother, an Abenaki grandmother, and an Abenaki Great-Grandmother?
I think not, right along with the Bruchac's, they can SAY and CLAIM that they are allegedly "Abenakis", yet that is far from the reality of their upbringing or anything else.
Really, c'mon, Amanda Lickers and her side kick Gabrowski was in the same PROTESTS, talking in the SAME CIRCLES as these pretender "Abenakis" up in Orleans County, and in Burlington, VT with these "Abenakis"


Dee Brightstar, an Abenaki woman who previously served on the tribal council for the Missisquoi Abenaki, noted the similarities between the Harper government’s treatment of First Nations and her people’s history in Vermont.

“The Canadian government passed Bill C-45. That will eliminate Indigenous rights,” she said, referring to the law passed in December that has sparked railroad blockades, round dances, and an ongoing hunger strike
by Attawapiskat chief Theresa Spence, which began on December 11.
She fears that First Nations in Canada, some of whom practice m ore traditional lifestyles than m any in the
United States, will lose their culture because of the passage of this bill.
Dee Brightstar said, “Bill C-45 is a form of eugenics.” referring to the racist program that included forced
sterilization of Abenaki and other poverty-stricken Vermonters in the early 1900′s. Eugenics nearly
eliminated the Abenaki people.

FAKE UNPROVEN "Abenakis" PRETENDING TO BE ABENAKIS is a form of Eugenics as well.

"Its not easy being green for Middlebury College"

Note: Anna Shireman-Grabowski is a member of Rising Tide Vermont, a fiscally -sponsored project of Global Justice Ecology Project. GJEP members William Bennington and Keith Brunner are also members of Rising Tide Vermont and the grassroots Campaign to Stop the Vermont Gas Pipeline.

By Jay Saper and Anna Shireman-Grabowski

"Middlebury College is now supporting a controversial pipeline that would carry fracked natural gas through Vermont and under Lake Champlain to the state of New York.
The company behind this project, Vermont Gas, currently operates a network of fracked gas distribution
pipelines in northern Vermont that it hopes to connect with national networks in New York.
Middlebury College, is one of the pre-approved intervenors, has avested interest in seeing the project completed. Specifically , it wants to use the pipeline to transport bio-methane — a renewable energy derived from cow manure — to its campus from a facility several miles outside of town. Middlebury has already committed $2 million to develop the bio-methane, which it would use when energy demands on campus exceed the capacity of its bio-mass plant. Currently , when that situation arises the school must resort to burning oil.
Those organizing against the pipeline are not the only ones wary of carbon offsets. Environmental justice advocates have long discredited this approach as presenting climate change in term s of individualistic morality, where peace of mind can be bought and collective political action is discouraged.
As the Indigenous Environmental Network pointed out in a recent statement, carbon offset program s do not consider the health and livelihoods of people living where fossil fuels are extracted, transported, refined and burned because they make carbon the only factor in the equation.

Charlie Delaney Megeso, Board Chair, has worked as a master mason for thirty years. He is currently an elected citizen judge in Chittenden County, Vermont. As a member of the Abenaki tribe, he has been involved in the indigenous movement for twenty-five years. He was a legal researcher for the tribal judge [the late Michael Arthur Delaney working with the late Homer W. St. Francis, Sr.] and served as tribal ambassador to Washington, DC. He wrote two bills that became law, concerning state recognition of indigenous tribes in Vermont. He is also a former chair of the Vermont Commission on Native American Affairs. Over the past eighteen years he has done reconstruction work with the Miskito people on the Atlantic Coast of Nicaragua. He works with the Miskito official representative to the US, and he serves as the North American representative of the Miskito to the United Nations and the US State Department. In 2002-2003 he was a delegate to the United Nations, representing both the Abenakis and Miskito; and he served on a committee working on the International Declaration of Indigenous Rights, ratified into international law in 2007.


So, Charles "Megezo" Delaney, Jr. is also a member of Rising Tide VT as well (?)


Rising Tide Vermont and Global Justice Ecology Project are helping Charlie raise $500 to help with his travel and lodging expenses while in NYC.


SEND CHARLIE TO THE UN PERMANENT FORUM ON INDIGENOUS ISSUES

Our dear friend Charlie Delaney-Megeso, a Nulhegan Abenaki, has been approved to represent the Nulhegan Abenaki at the United Nations Permanent Forum on Indigenous Issues.

Charlie is a long-time Indigenous rights activist, and has fought tirelessly for Abenaki recognition in so-called Vermont.  He has been involved in social and environmental justice issues, and has traveled on humanitarian delegations to Latin America.  Charlie is on the board of the Alliance for Global Justice.


As the former chair of the VT Commission on Native American Affairs, Charlie understands the issues facing Vermont's Indigenous People.  He hopes to bring back information on how Abenaki in Vermont can access international cultural and social programs for Indigenous Peoples, as well as to enable increased Abenaki involvement in international work on Indigenous issues.


Charlie will also be meeting with other Indigenous leaders from throughout the world to discuss the creation of workable mechanisms to enforce the UN Declaration on the Rights of Indigenous Peoples, and the development of an international Indigenous Peoples' Court.


Please help Charlie achieve these ambitious goals for himself and for the Abenaki by send a donation today.

Anna Shireman - Gabrowski (?)

Indigenous organizer Amanda Lickers has been working hard to stop the Line 9 Pipeline expansion in Canada, and to bring together first nation communities. We’re so lucky that she is willing to travel to the Northeast Kingdom and share her experience with us. We know that her keynote address and workshops at the Rendezvous will bring an important new perspective to our efforts as activists and environmentalists, and help build alliances across boarders.
But traveling costs money – and without your support, Amanda won’t be able to come all the way to Vermont. We need to raise $1500.00 in the next 8 days to get her here. We can do this! If just 75 people give $20 each, we will meet our goal. Many conferences and concerts cost much more than that – we’re just asking you to contribute now.
Click here to go to our donation site.
Don’t forget to share this with your friends!

Hello-

I'm a white settler activist interested in anti-colonial earth defense and working to develop active solidarity with First Nations folks in my region--the Northeast Kingdom of Vermont... I'm confused as to the various bands of Abenaki and those claiming to represent them... as a white person i feel no authority to judge the authenticity of them.
I'm writing to y'all in particular because i'd like to develop meaningful contacts with indigenous folks here--to offer the resources i have access to to further their struggles--and to solicit their input, perspective, etc regarding the campaigns i'm engaged in to defend this land base....

do you have any solid Abenaki contacts or more info into the historical Abenaki bands that you think would be useful to me?


i'm bringing Amanda Lickers--a member of the Turtle Clan of the Onondowaga nation, part of the Haudenosaunee Confederacy--to the region next month to do a workshop on anti-colonial ecodefense and would love to spread the word among First Nation folks in the region!


thanks in advance!

my real agenda is trying to build community agency to stop industrial infrastructure projects from destroying our landbase, and community resiliency to respond to increasingly frequent "natural" disasters, crises, etc.... 

i'm helping to organize an event in northern vermont on the right of way of the Portland Montreal Pipeline (owned by Exxon) which connects to Enbridge's Line 9..  Those companies currently ship light crude oil through those pipes, but they want to reverse the flow and ship heavy tar sands crude from "alberta" through them and out through the deepwater port of Portland, ME..... 

The event i'm helping to organize is The Rendezvous Aug 17 & 18 [2013] in Irasburg Vermont... it's a free/by donation/pay what you can event....    http://therendezvousvt.wordpress.com/

one of the keynote speakers and workshop facilitators i'm bringing out for the event is Amanda Lickers, a member of the Turtle Clan of the Onondowaga Nation...

Mountain Occupiers Rendezvous in Irasburg Aug. 17, 2013
Keynote speakers for the event are Professor Peter Brown, Ph.D. of McGill University, coauthor of Right Relationship: Building a Whole Earth Economy; and Amanda Lickers, an indigenous Seneca-Haudenosaunee who is currently organizing against the reversal of Line 9, a pipeline slated to carry Alberta tar sands crude to Montreal, Quebec, Canada.

Rendezvous organizer Carrie Glessner says, “We hope groups and individuals with an environmental or social justice mission will join us, and we invite everyone to learn more about the event workshops and speakers at our website: TheRendezvousVT.wordpress.com.

RisingTide activist, Michael Reddy, sees The Rendezvous as a rare opportunity. “Getting Mountain
Occupiers, 350VT’ers, Rising Tide, Earth Firsters!, First Nation folks, etc. all in one spot to talk
strategy is the most exciting thing about this event. There’s no time like the present to challenge ‘business as usual’.”

August 17, 2013

In Irasburg, there descended a swarm of quote, "members and attendee's of Mountain Occupiers 350VT'ers, RisingTide, Earth Firsters, "First Nation folks" (self proclaimed very likely), all in one location, to discuss and make their strategic plans of attack. Very likely Middlebury College.... why? 

The answer lies in a previous article: July 05, 2013 entitled, "Its not easy being green for Middlebury College.

September 11, 2013  - approximately 3:00 PM


A group of 5 young protesters decided that 2,997 small 9/11 memorial flags placed in a Middlebury College campus lawn needed to be removed because they were on top of a Native American burial ground yesterday.

Vermont has a long history with the Abenakis — native to the New England area. The University of Vermont has done research which concluded that several Abenaki women had been sterilized. 

Apparently, the University of Vermont did not do any research at all nor haven't done their homework on the accuracy of what is cited in that http://www.uvm.edu/~lkaelber/eugenics/VT/VT.html, regarding the ALLEGED sterilizations during the Eugenics Program of Vermont, because clearly, and obviously the University of Vermont quote, 

"The Abenakis were a large group targeted by the Vermont Eugenics laws, and though, according to Paul, the last noted sterilization occurred in 1957, the Abenakis continued to be sterilized (Dowbiggin, p. 181).  "

"Between 1973 and 1976, approximately 3400 Abenaki women were sterilized in the United States, including those sterilized in Vermont; full informed consent was not obtained" (Dowbiggin, p. 181)." 


THIS is an intentional MISQUOTE, out of the book written and compiled by it's author Ian Robert Dowbiggin.

The book, on Page 181 does not say that Abenaki woman continued to be sterilized in the United States at all.

What is actually STATED in the book on Page 181, is this: 

“Data relating to the sterilization of Native Americans cast an equally gloomy pall over efforts to popularize sterilization in the 1970’s. During the heyday of eugenic sterilization, in the 1930’s, Native American tribes such as Vermont’s Abenakis had been targeted for sterilization, but far from dying out, this disturbing practice actually thrived in later years.  [71] 

In 1976, the General Accounting Office released data that indicated that 3,406 Native American women in one-third of all Indian Health Services (HIS) districts had been sterilized between 1973 and 1976 without filling out proper consent forms."

Amanda Lickers, a member of the Onondowa’ga Nation, a part of the Onkwehon:we, a member of the Turtle Clan and the Onondowa’ga Nation of the Haudenosaunee Confederacy, claims she did this, because she was told by another alleged student of the Middlebury College, that there was a Abenaki Burial Site on campus, and seeing the small American flags in the ground, thinking with her heart, made the alleged instantaneous decision, to start pulling them up, with her white settler activist's sympathsizer's, such as Anna Shireman - Gabrowski and several other non-students, helping pull the flags up, and stuffing them hastily into Glad garbage bags.

When confronted, Amanda Lickers launched into a verbal tirade wherein she used BIG wordage's like:

1. "our people have been under attack"
2. "the theft of our territories"
3. "the devastation of our waters"
4. "the poisoning of our people through the poisoning of our lands"
5. "the theft of our people from our families"
6. "the rape of our children"
7. "the murder of our women"
8. "the sterilization of our communities"
9. "the abuse of our generations"
10. "the uprooting of our ancestors and the occupation of our sacred sites"
11. "the silencing of our songs" 
12. "the erasure of our languages and memories of our traditions"

When confronted by fellow Middlebury, VT College, Junior Student Benjamin Harris, all that Amanda Lickers could conclude was that this young man, was a "a nationalistic-settler, a young white boy". She did not want to cave to his support of the occupying, settler-colonial, imperialist state, and the endorsing of the genocide of indigenous peoples across the world
Upon requested by this Benjamin Harris, to relinquish the said 2,977 American flags to him, she simply stated that they were being "confiscated" and when further attention was garnered by the incident as it unfolded, the Onkwehon:we of the Turtle Clan and the Onondowa’ga Nation of the Haudenosaunee Confederacy, along with her cronies, RAN AWAY with the bags of flags in hand.

"It is the duty of the college of Middlebury College to consult with abenaki peoples and repatriate their grounds."

So, who, in fact, put Ms. Amanda Lickers and her cohorts such as Anna Sheriman-Gabrowski, up to this STUNT, in their attempt at media attention, etc.? 

This is the question that begs to be answered, and like in Elementary, Middle, or High School, no one wants to admit to any wrong doing but point to the VISIBLE PERPETRATORS that were on that Middlebury College Campus on that particular day.


Donald Warren Stevens, Jr. [formerly of the St. Francis - Sokoki group led by April St. Francis - Merrill and now of "Chief" of the "Nulhegan" "Tribe"] proceeded to claim, "that the vandalism was 'disgusting' and believes the protesters were acting to promote their own political beliefs." and he continued, "We didn't know anything about this and if we had, we certainly wouldn't have sanctioned it," Stevens said.

He said that Abenakis do not publicize the locations of their burial sites, in order to protect them, and that he has no knowledge of any such sites on the Middlebury campus. Stevens said that even if the site of the memorial had been a burial site, the American flags placed in the earth would not have been  a desecration..... etc.

Anna Shireman-Grabowski, a college senior, invited Amanda Lickers, a Canadian left-wing activist to campus to promote “decolonization”. Shireman-Grabowski and Licker were both involved in environmental anti-industry protests.
In a phone interview, Lickers identified herself as the leader of the group and said she had “absolutely no regrets” about her actions. Lickers said she was invited to campus by the Associate Dean of Students for Student Activities & Orientation J.J. Boggs to give a workshop on “settler responsibility and colonization.” College spokeswoman Sarah Ray disputed this and said Lickers was invited by Shireman-Grabowski. At the workshop, which was held at noon on Wednesday, a Middlebury student said the campus was the site of an Abenaki burial ground, Lickers said. Based on this information, Lickers made a “spontaneous” decision to remove the flags after she discovered their presence on a campus lawn.

Later, several varied people, decided to pitch their two cents worth on the events that happened after-the-fact, such as Crystal M. Lampman:

The granddaughter [Crystal M. Lampman born on March 13, 1979 in St. Albans, VT, daughter of Lester Marvin Lampman and Ann Marie nee: Gaudette] of Chief Leonard "Blackie" Miles Lampman had this response: As the granddaughter of Chief Leonard "Blackie" Miles Lampman let me tell you how I view your desecration of a memorial that holds meaning to me– you have disgraced MY family, MY people, MY heritage, and MY history. Do NOT call yourself sister to me. There are ways to accomplish getting ones point across without being disrespectful and hurtful. Case in point a DOCUMENTED Abenaki burial ground which now hosts a beautiful memorial on the banks of the Missisquoi River on Monument Rd in Swanton/Highgate. You have slapped in the face everything my family has worked for in gaining honor to be able to call oneself Abenaki. You have dishonored the memory of my grandfather a Chief and US Soldier. My Grandfather surely is shaking his head in shame at you supposed educated future leaders of our nation.

Ok, so let's review this a bit:

First of all, regardless of her claims of being the Granddaughter of Leonard M. "Blackie" Lampman this response means absolutely nothing. Most everyone is the grandchild of someone. How has what happened in Middlebury College on 9/11/2013 disgraced HER family, HER people, HER "heritage" or HER "history"? 

The Lampman's have proven NOTHING to connect genealogically, their ancestry, to the Abenakis whatsoever. 

This "Because-they-SAY-they-are-Abenakis" is utter BS and nonsense. The Lampman family of Franklin County, VT proved absolutely NOTHING to the Bureau of Indian Affairs OFA, nor really to the State of VT as well. As well, the St. Francis Family didn't provide ANY EVIDENCE connecting their family to the Abenakis at all either.

As for gaining honor to be able to call oneself "Abenaki"

How about the Lampman's and or the St. Francis' or ANY of these FAKE "Abenaki groups members providing unmanipulated and transparently, the actual convincing definite genealogical-historical-and social proof DOCUMENTED, that they (or the Lampman's etc) were or are connected to the Abenakis, and not just "followers" of the Homer Walter St. Francis Sr. bunch "when it suited them" through the years, eh? 

And here is a statement from Donna Louise (nee: Carvalho) Charlebois - Moody:

"I have worked on Abenaki repatriation for 19 yrs. and on sacred site protection. Wherever we go in this world, we are in someone's homeland. Bluntly--those flags are analogous to a stone honoring cairn and as an Abenaki mother, grandmother, and great grandmother, I personally have no problem with the honoring and see no possible way this can be construed as a desecration of land-- one, it's not a permanent display, and two, that land has already been hammered with concrete, brick, roadways, and whatever ground disturbing work was done to construct the campus. Let's get some rational perspective on this. I'm disturbed by other posts here which exhibit a great lack in education and information."


I do not respect ARROGANCE. [Claiming one is an "Abenaki" mother-grandmother and great-grandmother SHOWS the arrogance in her thinking and thought processes.]

 And speaking as if one is an Abenaki, with no valid evidence, is an identity theft against the Abenaki People. Wabenaki/Waubanaki/Wabanaki does not equal "Abenaki" at all. 

It is an attempt to bastardize the reality of those Abenaki Ancestors, by these PRETENDER'S !!

Prove Donna (nee: Carvalho) Moody, that you are Abenaki ... because all I see is a HURON ancestor, generations nearly past my two hands fingers from you ....

Let's see, has Donna Moody proven genealogically that she comes from the Abenakis? 

Or does everyone just accept this Because-I-SAY-that-I'm-"Abenaki" dynamic? 


If no one questions and requests/demands the actual viable convincing evidence HISTORICALLY - SOCIALLY and importantly GENEALOGICALLY of these groups of their "tribes"/"members" connection(s) to the Abenakis.....


Then how does anyone, individually or as an AGENCY actually HONESTLY KNOW that they are dealing with actual bonefide documented historically connected Abenaki People?


SO, IN CONCLUSION:

After reading all of this, knowing that Charles L. Delaney, Jr. Megezo - John K. Lawyer Greywolf- and Deanna Lou Dudley Dee Brightstar, and even Carol Irons, along with this Anna Shireman - Gabrowski, as well as Amanda Lickers, are a part of and active in these organization's such as Rising Tide Vermont, Climate Connections and Mountain Occupiers etc. etc., does anyone really honestly believe that Don Stevens, Jr. and his Nulhegan - Cowass Inc.'d group now a State-Recognized "Tribe" of "abenakis" had no knowledge of Amanda Lickers and Ms. Gabrowski's INTENT when they went to Middlebury College on 9/11 and did what they did?

Who did Amanda Lickers stay with while in Orleans County, Vermont; WHO did she speak with and hear from? She went to ORLEANS COUNTY, VERMONT, for this Rendezvous Event, stayed in VT all that time, until September 11, 2013? Who'd she stay with, and visit with?

Answer: Northeast Kingdom wannabial "Indigenous groups" such as Nulhegan, and perhaps even she spoke with John Lawyer, Charles L. Delaney, Jr. and Dee Brightstar? Or even Luke Willard and Don Stevens?

She certainly didn't come into Vermont for cake and ice cream.....

Whose the student (by name) who informed her that such an area where those flags were, was an alleged "Abenaki Burial Ground"? 

She was co-organizer of a protest held prior to a Vermont Public Service Board hearing on the Addison Natural Gas Project at Middlebury Union Middle School on Sept. 10.

During a brief interview that evening with the Addison Independent, she identified herself as a volunteer with Rising Tide Vermont, a group whose self-proclaimed mission is to be “part of a movement which opposes the expansion of industrial infrastructure in the Northeast U.S. and Eastern Canada, and exposes corporate and state-sponsored false solutions to the climate crisis.”

Shireman-Grabowski also led a similar protest in June, when she and 20 others marched into the Montpelier offices of the Public Service Board and demanded to meet with Commissioner Chris Recchia, vtdigger.org reported. She also was leader of a May 7 march on campus that culminated in the presentation to college officials of a petition signed by 1,400 people asking them to revoke their support for the natural gas pipeline.

A second person also spoke about her involvement in the vandalism through an online post and in an interview with the Independent.

In an article posted on climate-connections.org, Amanda Lickers stated she was also involved in the vandalism.

Lickers said she is a member of the Haudenosaunee Confederacy, another name for the Iroquois, a group of tribes in New York state.

Lickers is a surname at Akwesas:ne as well. Hmm, let's take a review going back a little further in time:

June 23rd, 2011

NATION AT NULHEGAN/MEMPHREMAGOG [Luke A. Willard and or Don W. Stevens, Jr.]


National Forests are owned by the federal government and they are nothing but resource banks... NOT conservation... at least not the way we view conservation. At any time that the fed desires, they can fill the White Mountain, Green Mountain, or any other national forest with oil wells, coal mines, quarries, wind farms (which are horrible and I'll debate that with anyone), ANYTHING that they want. Enjoy them while they are pristine but don't get attached... they don't belong to your state and the state has NO SAY WHATSOEVER in regards to national forests. The forest service might humor states and tribes by including them in "discussions" but it's only to shut us up. We learned this from experience. Our TRIBAL & TOWN FORESTS model is much different. Local ownership, local stewardship, and local use. If you're a member of a tribe that has a population of 750, you feel a sense of ownership in the tribe's forest land and because of that sense of ownership, you treat it well yourself and you care greatly about how others treat it. A national forest is owned (technically) by 300,000,000 people but those people have absolutely no say in its use or management. Also, the mineral rights, development rights, etc might be owned by another country like China. It's pretty difficult to establish any sense of ownership with national forests, parks, and conservations. And let's not forget how they got the land in the first place.

Per the Abenaki Nation at Nulhegan/Memphremagog Facebook Page:


"Mega wind projects such as the Sheffield and Lowell Mtn projects require mountain tops and ridges to be blasted, destroying the ridge lines and damaging the surrounding ecosystems. As an Abenaki, what is your position?


MountainOccupiers = Nulhegan Wannabiak (?) etc.


My Response:


IS Don Stevens, Jr. telling you Vermonter's the truth when he SAYS, he's an "Abenaki" and that he & they is descendant(s) from Old Philips of the Deed in 1796, and that he, and his followers of the Nulhegan group a.k.a. Vermont "abenaki" "tribe" .... 

... had absolutely NOTHING directly or indirectly to do with what happened in Middlebury College on 9/11/2013?

Follow the dots. Do the Math. Do the Homework..... The bull-shit gets deeper with these pretender "abenaki" wannabiak....

Were these "abenaki" groups simply standing 'in the background' of this incident at Middlebury College, with their dirty hands behind their backs, playing the "NO... NOT ME, WE WEREN'T INVOLVED" game?

Were these FAKE "ABENAKIS" of VT were ALL INVOLVED from the VERY BEGINNING? INDIRECTLY (naturally they didn't want to get their hands really dirty) so they let this pair of women, do the dirty work for them? A Great publicity stunt? 

And now that this stunt is gaining quite a lot of negative publicity .... the "Abenaki" "tribes" and their "Chiefs" claim not to know anything about it? 

It doesn't take a rocket scientist to FIGURE OUT the reality of WHY it was intended that Middlebury, VT College was maliciously 'targeted' by these two demonstrating/protesting/activist women, and the other people involved with them.
