Re: “Chief Don Stevens Represents a New Era of Abenaki Leadership in Vermont

NO, White Caucus of Black Lives Matter, and a study group "Toxic Whiteness" at the Peace and Justice Center? (Interesting) White people are doing the work, and it is opening our eyes. T

That is WHITE PEOPLE taking over the narrative and redefining the truths of victims of White Racism. Instead of actually dealing with WHITE Supremacy racism in this country, it's like a band-aid over a severe knife cut. White people controlling and usurping. It's like hiring a NON NATIVE self-identifying "Abenaki" to Penn State, and everyone claiming that it is "decolonization" by fast-tracking the hire of this pretend "Abenaki" to which that now allegedly SPEAKS for Native Peoples, based on their falsehoods and cultural appropriation and Abenaki Identity Theft due their fault beliefs and perceptions about their ancestral history. It PAYS to be "Abenaki" post-2005 into today, based on a singular 300 year old ancestor that wasn't even Abenaki to begin with. Its just the reality. The State of Vermont politicians are now complicit in the ruse and scheming and scamming of the Vermont taxpayer. Creating a minority population out of nothing. Sort of funny when you think of Odzihozo. Wonder what he would think if he were to wake up and look at these pretenders claiming to be his descendants. Odzihozo would not recognize them, even if they have learned a little Abenaki language!

Re: “Chief Don Stevens Represents a New Era of Abenaki Leadership in Vermont

The final act of colonization is the assumption/consumption of Indigenous identity. Enough said.

Re: “Legislature Takes Up Resolution to Apologize for Role in Eugenics Movement

The Eugenics Survey did NOT target the Abenakis. No where in those records is there an Abenaki identified whatsoever. If one looks at the Phillips Family of VT mentioned therein they were Black (African descent born out of slavery in CT and brought into northern VT ca. 1791 by the Keyes and Sheldon Families, and the Phillips were originally Phelps! You can detect this connection by way of Page 11 of the Phillips Summary of the V.E.S. Now you may ASSUME the Eugenics Records are private, or what have you, but in fact they are very much a matter of PUBLIC RECORD. Peter Phelps was the father of Antoine Phillips (1814-1885) who married Catherine Emery dit Coderre. Now let's see you do your homework Vermont! I won't hold my breath that you will. You haven't so far.

Re: “Sara Holbrook Community Center's Namesake Linked to Eugenics Movement

Because the SURVEY didn't target Abenakis. The Survey did target the FRENCH, the poor white folks, and BLACKS. But you won't hear about that from these folks like Rich Holschuh. Because they have been using that SURVEY to perp their myth that they are Indians and that they were sterilized by the Eugenics Survey... let me tell you something folks, they know a number about 230 persons unnamed who were sterilized, and we don't know who, wny when or how, let alone if they were Abenaki descendants or not. Hello ever heard of HIPPA? Secondly it wasn't the SURVEY doing the sterilizations, it was other institutions who by law, client medical records are protected under HIPPA, and because sterilization is in fact a medical procedure, therefore is protected, documentarily. So Richard Holschuh and his "Abenaki" circus can simply whine and bark with their myth making about sterilization of the "Abenakis" but its all a delusion and illusion on their part. Go ahead and believe what you want to, or you can do your homework and find out the lies, and the myths, from the truth and reality of the Eugenics Survey of the time. BTW. Sarah Holbrook was a lesbian (big deal). As for the reporter harassing Judy (Fortin) Dow over the above situation. Let sleeping dogs sleep was not part of the equation looking for Mrs. Dow's commentary on the matter. Rich Holschuh ought to keep his mouth shut before spewing such nonsense. Everybody wants to play a victim today. Or an Abenaki Indian.

Re: “Sara Holbrook Community Center's Namesake Linked to Eugenics Movement

Rich Holschuh LOVES to play Indian. Check out his genealogy. Lot's of people today LOVE to PLAY INDIAN. The Eugenics Survey of VT did not STERILIZE anyone, contrary to the MYTH these pretenders have perped since 1986. I ought to know, I've studied the Eugenics SURVEY documents verbatim. They are public information. So is Richard Holschuh's background. If you care to do a google search. BEFORE 1986 when Kevin Dann propped that awareness onto Homer's desk, no one talked about Eugenics targeting Abenakis.

Re: “An Almost-Auction of Abenaki Artifacts Reopens Old Wounds

Well first off I wasn't speaking about you Brett T. whoever "you" or or your mother are. She might be "Abenaki" she might even have a membership card now or past tense. That's doesn't make her an Abenaki. But then again, you aren't using your full name so transparency, (as usual)... is one sided here. So prove me wrong, respectfully said. SHOW me the evidence that proves that your mother was/ is an Abenaki. What is her name, birth date, parents names, dates, places, her parents names and births, marriage, deaths, and locations. Again, it's about transparency.

AND then show me how digging up the skeletal remains and artifacts connect to your mother or any of her ancestors, that are being dug up in and around Swanton, by state-sanctioned looters called archaeologists! When you can the above requests, then by all means I will be proven wrong. Until then I stand by what I've stated in my initial post. And that is, that these skeletal remains of indigenous peoples buried in N'dakinna (Swanton in particular) do not belong ancestrally or otherwise to you, to your mother, or any of your ancestors, and certainly not to the group up there in Swanton. It's identity theft and blatant theft (imho) based on my research, the State's research by the AG's Office, and the BIA's research and just plain common sense!

Re: “The Parmelee Post: Indigenous Vermonters Form Abenaki First Group

Yes, let's all get a really good evaluating "education" on the so-called "Abenaki" groups in Vermont. Let's actually read the BIA Report and the previous State's Report of 2002 Eva Jacob's-Carnahan and the AG's Dept, shall we, Vermonters?
Let's see here: In a nut shell, and to make a long story short, the Swanton group led by Homer was started in fact by Ronnie Canns, you know, the son of politician Julius Canns who immediately went about advocating for the Homer group in 1992, never mentioned his son involved in creating that group in 1975 after he was in Concord, NH creating a group down there? Or how about the 4 Indians of Alburg being ancestors of Patsy St. Francis, Homer's wife, when in fact, those 4 Indians mentioned in Alburgh Town Records were Akwesasne Mohawk men! Or how about the Chief of the Wabanacus Postcard Wiseman altered, because it was actually an Odanak Chief visiting his ancestral community of Missisquoi, not a Chief of the post 1975 group at all nor its members ancestors? Or how about the Phillips family member, Chief Stevens of the 2004 created group Nulhegan claiming his Phillips family were descendants of the Chief Philipp of ca. 1796 Upper Coos, NH area, when in fact his family is desc.'s of a Peter Phelps, a colored man who came from CT ca. 1790?! DNA testing proves this! Yes, let's have that "education" about the fraudulent state granted and manipulated "recognition" of these pretender "Abenakis" by the Vermont Legislature and the two Governors, or was that three, counting Thomas Salmon back in Thanksgiving, 1976? Do you see the Abenakis laughing? I see the fake one's laughing all the way to the bank!
