Vermont panel urges state to recognize Elnu Abenaki, Nulhegan Band

By Lisa Rathke
Montpelier, Vermont (AP)


Decades after the first Abenaki Indians sought state recognition, two tribes might get that chance.

A panel organized to set up a process for state recognition of Indian tribes in Vermont recommended last week that the Legislature recognize the Elnu Abenaki, based in Jamaica in southern Vermont, and the Nulhegan Band of the Coosuk Abenaki Nation, based in Brownington in northern Vermont. The step could allow the tribes to sell its crafts as Indian-made and seek federal education grants.
