Aroosaguntacook Tribe (Abenaki)

"Aroosaguntacook" was the name of one of the important bands or subgroups of the Abenaki tribe, located in what is now western Maine and northeastern New Hampshire. Their name comes from an Abenaki word meaning "river of rock shelters," referring to the Androscoggin River that flows through their territory. After the arrival of Europeans, the Aroosaguntacooks merged into other Abenaki and New England Algonquian groups and today there is no distinct Aroosaguntacook band.
