Koasek Indian Tribe
"Koasek" is the name of one of the bands or subgroups of the Abenaki tribe,
located in what is now New England.
The name Koasek (also spelled goasek or kowasek) means "people by the white pines"
in the Abenaki language.
Descendants of the Koasek Abenakis live in many places today, but especially in Vermont and Massachusetts.
