about the 2020 Census

A Word from Chief Don...

Dear Nulhegan Citizens and citizens of other tribes,

This is Chief Don Stevens from the Nulhegan Abenaki Tribe. Every person living in Vermont shapes the future of our beautiful state by being counted in the 2020 Census. This is especially important for under-served and under-counted Native American populations.

The Decennial Census shapes how billions of Federal dollars are distributed to fund things like our roads and infrastructure, and the health and human services programs that make our communities a better places to live. 

Responding to the census online, by phone, or mail is simple and safe. The form asks a few simple questions including name, age, gender, race, ethnicity, and relationship. Your answers are secure, and cannot by law, be shared with other governmental agencies. 

So no matter what your tribal status or tribal affiliation, I urge you to respond to the 2020 Census and make sure your family is counted. Please do it for the sake of your children, grandchildren, and for your community! For more information about how to identify your tribal affiliation, please go to www.abenakitribe.com or contact your local US. Census Department.

Wliwni (thank you) for listening!

I have chosen to put this information here rather than on the Citizens Only page because many on you have not yet set up your password. It is incredibly important that you are counted as Nulhegan Abenaki in the census. It not only records that we are here, but it will be helpful when our tribe applies for grants. It is also detrimental for receiving funding for Title 7 for our schools.

The examples below are from the Census Form if you prefer to not download a copy. Note that Section 9 if for Person 1 in the census. Section 7 if for each additional person. They are all the same, they just have different numbers.

Please be sure to check the block by "American Indian" and then print  your tribe's name in the blocks below in  that same section. For example:

Nulhegan Abenaki

Missisquoi Abenaki

Elnu Abenaki

Koasek Abenaki
