Here is a copy of Nathan Pero's thank you note to Charles Calley:

May 25, 2009
Thank you to Charles Calley for your generous gift of the traditional Abenaki corn to the Tribe.
This corn will be passed on to any member who would like to grow it and pass it along to other members in order to keep this corn species alive. It will also be given to any school who would like to learn about and grow the Three Sisters garden, consisting of corn, beans and squash or pumpkins.
Accepting this gift from Charles on behalf of the Tribe is Nathan E. Pero, Sub-Chief of the Nolka Clan, and sitting member of the Koasek Tribal Council.
Thank you once again to Charles and his family for keeping this corn species alive.
Nathan E. Pero
