A Landmark Moment in Tribal History

State Recognition Achieved

On Monday, May 7th, 2012, Vermont Governor Shumlin signed into law tribal recognition for the St. Francis-Sokoki Band of the Abenaki Nation at Missisquoi. 

This historic act marked a significant milestone in the journey towards acknowledgment and respect for the Abenaki people. It opened new avenues for cultural preservation and legal rights, signaling a new era of recognition and empowerment for the tribe.
