The mission of the Nulhegan Band of the Coosuk Abenaki Nation is to strengthen our government; to build our community, and ensure sustainability; to protect our customs and traditions; and to revive our culture and celebrate our heritage while sharing it with those around us.

It is our birthright and obligation to advocate for our ancestral territory so that its uniqueness and beauty will be protected for the generations to come.
Statement on Abenaki Ethnocide in History, Scholarship, and Social Media

Consideration is also being given to the current, unused early childhood program space into a day care. Because the space has already been established and approved, the transition will be smooth.
