Standing with Vt. Abenaki

After attending a meeting that The Commons reporter, Robert F. Smith, was covering, I want to state that I wholeheartedly support the Vermont Abenaki tribes.

The controversy from the Québec tribes reads as a disrespectful attack on our state-recognized tribes and individuals within them.

If there is ever any effort to rescind that state recognition and disenfranchise Vermont Abenaki of their heritage, I would stand with them and hope that fellow Vermonters would do so as well.
