Reinvented Abenaki

Reinvented Abenaki Take Notice!

 A Special Note to the Reinvented Abenaki and similar culture clubs.

I will make this simple for you —

Keep your distance and I will remain silent about your questionable genealogy.

You have a right to dislike me and my organization, but you do not have a right to make false claims about us or violate our legal rights. I reserve the right to use this blog to document the ancestry of anyone found making false statements about this blog, myself, or Ne-Do-Ba, or violating our copyright in any media, on or off-line.

Ne-Do-Ba has always had a strict privacy policy – we do not make comments about the ancestry of living people and we do not keep records for people born after 1900. However, since we are now being attack on a regular basis by people making false claims about their ancestry, we have loosened our policy for the purpose of this blog and only this blog. Your genealogical privacy is still strictly protected by Ne-Do-Ba  – EXCEPT ON THIS BLOG. If you persist in spreading false information to the public and involve me or this organization in any way, I will use your name and I will comment about your ancestry on this blog.

Keep your distance and I will remain silent about your questionable genealogy!

There are those in N’dakina (our homeland) who will claim this blog is biased against them and only promoting Ne-Do-Ba’s own agenda. They are correct – our agenda is to promote responsible, intelligent, documented research and present our findings publicly. I am making this clear now so there is no question about it – any person not on board with our agenda will be discriminated against in all respects. If you are uncomfortable with that, please go somewhere else.

Keep your distance and I will remain silent about your questionable genealogy!

There are folks who will claim our blog policy is intended to cover-up or hide the truth concerning their families. They will be dead wrong. First, I will let my readers be the best judge of my actions. Second, provide appropriate historical documentation to demonstrate we are hiding something and I will explore it in public on this blog. My readers will then be able to form their own conclusions about your claims. If you are uncomfortable with this, please go somewhere else.

Keep your distance and I will remain silent about your questionable genealogy!

    I am related (8th great grand parents) to Mrtin Prevost (1611-1691) who married Mantouabeouchit (1624-1665). My 9th great grandfather was Roch Manitouabeouicht. Where or how do I find documents and info on them. Thank you.

  2. I’m trying to find more about the off-reservation communities in the 1800’s, like in Yamaska, Quebec. I would love to find family that is still connected to the Abenaki culture and nation. Arpin, Moreau, Bourret, Petit dit Beauchemin…

    • To find the answer, you need to do the research starting with your family to see exactly where they are living and when. Then look at the history of the area around them to see if there is historic use of the area by Native families. In Quebec in the 1800s, the church records are the best place to find evidence of multiple Native families forming a small community. Canadian census records are also helpful in identifying Native communities. If your family is maintaining it’s cultural ties they will be identified as Indians in public records or you will find them returning to the parish of their home reserve for marriages and baptisms.
