Aquannaque (Aquannaques)

"Aquannaque" is an alternate name for the Abenaki tribe. It is no longer used today, but can be found in historical texts. "Aquannaque" was originally a Huron or Iroquois mispronunciation of the word "Abenaki" itself-- there is no B sound in any of the Iroquoian languages, making the name Abenaki a tongue-twister for them.
