12. July 25, 2011 - Terrebonne resident digs for Native American roots - Published in Houma Courier (Houma LA) & Daily Comet (Thibodaux LA) By Nikki Buskey Staff Writer
Coni Dubois poses at the site of a Manissean Indian village in Block Island, RI. Eighteen years ago, Coni Allen Dubois’ father made a request that would become a life’s mission. “He knew he was Native American, but back then it was a voodoo to talk about that kind of stuff,” said Dubois, who lives in Gray. “He asked me, ‘Please, find our Native American roots.’ Allen’s father died in September, before she could finish her search. But his death spurred her to delve even deeper into her family’s history and discover a connection to Native American tribes in the northeastern United States. “It’s the first story of American history,” Dubois said. Dubois said she’s traced more than 17,000 people through her family tree on both her mother and father’s sides. She traced her heritage back to the Algonquian Indians, including the Mohegan, Pequot and Narragansett tribes. She also discovered a connection to the Long Island Indians. Dubois returned from a summer genealogy research trip this past week. She visited archaeology digs at sites connected to her ancestors, including the place that hosted King Philip’s War, a battle between Native Americans and settlers. She also viewed recently unearthed artifacts from the Pequot Massacre. “To walk those lands that my ancestors did — I cry at every one of those sites,” Dubois said. She visited the site of a Manissean Village in Block Island, R.I., where she was involved in a ceremony that dedicated a stone marking the site.

14. August 8, 2011 - Former resident searches for her roots at father's request -Published in the Pilot News (Plymouth IN) and other local papers in the area -By Lydia Beers, Staff Writer - lbeers@thepilotnews.com
Coni Dubois poses with two archaeologists who have assisted her in her genealogy search, Kevin McBride and Ken Feder.
PLYMOUTH — What began with a simple request from her father has grown into a lifetime search for Coni Dubois. Dubois, who grew up in Marshall County with her parents Rex and Nancy Allen, first began searching for her ancestors 18 years ago. “(My father) said, Coni, find our Native American roots,” said Dubois, who added that her father was raised Native American but had no idea where he had come from. “(Their family) just didn’t talk about it, being Native American was considered bad,” said Dubois. Dubois, who now lives in Louisiana, decided to do exactly what her father asked, embarking on several trips to Connecticut, Rhode Island, and Massachusetts—places where her research led her to believe her ancestors might have lived. She discovered that she is a descendant of the Mohegan, Pequot and Narragansett tribes—sub-tribes of what are known as the Long Island Indians. In her travels, Dubois met and worked with many archeologists and Native American tribes who she said appreciated her pure intentions in finding her family.“Tribes do not want to give genealogy out because of tribal rights,” said Dubois, “(but) I’m not in this for my tribal rights, I want to find my ancestors.”Since beginning her search, Dubois has uncovered reams of valuable information, including that she is a descendant of Chegonoe, the Native American who interpreted John Eliot’s Bible.While searching for her ancestors, Dubois has used www.ancestry.com and said that the website has been the backbone of her work. She is planning another trip in October to Long Island to do hands-on research. Dubois’s father, Rex Allen, passed away in 2010, an event that Dubois said spurred on her search. “When my dad died, he knew I was close,” said Dubois, continuing, “but when he passed away, I guess it was the grief—I just dug in.”With her father in mind, Dubois continued on her mission. She said she doesn’t believe her search to discover her ancestors will ever end. “It will never be done,” said Dubois. Dubois dedicates six hours every day to her research. Rather than being tedious, Dubois said that what she finds is so exciting that it keeps her coming back for more. “It’s a quest,” said Dubois. “I want to know my roots. I want to honor my ancestors. Their story is too beautiful not to be told.” Because of her through search, Dubois said she has been invited to speak on genealogy in various forums. Although she has more than enough information to write and publish a book, Dubois said that she has no plans to do so at this time. “I’m not an author, I’m a researcher,” Dubois stated simply, although adding that members of her family who are in the book business may develop a book later. Dubois carefully documents all her findings on her blog, www.conidubois.wordpress.com, and so far has more than more than 70 research books filled with information. She also maintains a Facebook group where fans can view updates and photos called Barkhamsted Lighthouse.

17. Signs along trail telltale of forgotten village in Barkhamsted -Published: September 11, 2011 - By Alec Johnson -Published in the Republican-American (Waterbury CT)
Coni Allen Dubois of Louisiana, a descendant of the Lighthouse Tribe that formerly called the People’s Sate Forest in Barkhamsted their home on Saturday unveils one of six new signs installed along a trail telling her ancestor’s history. Alec Johnson / Republican-American Coni Allen Dubois of Louisiana, a descendant of the Lighthouse Tribe that formerly called the People’s Sate Forest in Barkhamsted their home on Saturday unveils one of six new signs installed along a trail telling her ancestor’s history.  Alec Johnson / Republican-American
BARKHAMSTED — A little village deep in the woods of People’s State Forest that was abandoned in 1860 is back in the minds of local residents and descendants of the Native Americans who once called the land off East River Road home. On Saturday, more than 50 people huddled around a trail as a sign telling the story of the Barkhamsted Lighthouse Village was unveiled from beneath a green tarp by Lighthouse Tribe descendant Coni Allen Dubois. Dubois, who traveled from Louisiana, and six other descendants of James Chaughum came from across the country for the day.Chaughum, a member of the Narragansett tribe, and his wife, Molly, an Irish immigrant, settled there around 1740 after being cast away from society because of their relationship.Six signs tell the story of the village. There is a burial ground, a foundation of a former cabin, stone quarry, grind stone and charcoal kilns (mounds where charcoal that fueled foundries in Litchfield County was made) along a trail that winds up Ragged Mountain. Kenneth L. Feder, an archaeologist and professor at Central Connecticut State University, since 1985 has studied artifacts and history of the village lived in by Chaughum and his eight children. Feder said that over his years of studying the area he found it troubling that so few people knew the history of the village. People had no idea there had been a thriving village here with 100 or 150 people, he said. “People have lost the connection to this.” The signs, sponsored by the Barkhamsted Historical Society were installed over the summer to teach hikers about the forgotten village. “This story will never be forgotten and it will never die,” Feder said. “The work has resulted in a permanent memorial to the folks who lived here.” Dubois began studying her family history 19 years ago at the request of her father. The family knew they were descendants of Native Americans, but over the years the history became muddled. Dubois’ studies led her to Barkhamsted years ago and she has returned several times since. Having the signs and accurate history to inform the public of her ancestors, she said was “amazing.”During earlier visits she found evidence of campfires in the burial ground. “Now people will have more respect for the area and more love for the people that were here,” she said. Dubois’ sister, Tonia Allen Gould of California, said that at one time historians believed the families that lived in the village had died out, when there are actually thousands of descendants alive.”It is an amazing tribute to the Lighthouse Indian village ancestors, words can’t express how we feel about that.”

Contemporary Geographies of Leisure, Tourism And Mobility - Contemporary Issues in Cultural Heritage Tourism

Contemporary Geographies of Leisure, Tourism And Mobility – Contemporary Issues in Cultural Heritage Tourism

This book provides for the first time a cohesive volume about cultural heritage as applied to tourism and development that is theoretically rich, practically applied and empirically grounded. Written by expert scholars and practitioners, the book covers a broad range of theoretical perspectives which have not been explored together before; regeneration, policy, stakeholders, marketing, socio-economic development, impacts, sustainability, volunteering and ICT. It further takes a broad view of cultural heritage by integrating international examples of sites and monuments in addition to motor vehicle heritage events and modern art museums. This significant book will be of interest to students, researchers and practitioners in a range of disciplines.
