Coosuck: See Abenaki
"Coosuck" or "Coösuck" is the name of one of the bands or subgroups of the Abenaki tribe,
located in what is now New England.
The name Coosuck is a corruption of the band's name in their own language, koasek (also
spelled goasek or kowasek), which means "people by the white pines."
Descendants of the Coosuck Abenakis live in many places today, but especially in Vermont and Massachusetts.
