bill we as a people are unable to label our crafts/art as "Native Made" So,until Pending Legislation Granting Full State Recognition is
passed,(We) under Federal Guidelines regarding Native or Indian made items will not sell any items as such.  However, we can sell
our items as made by Abenaki Descendants.
