"Missisquoi" is the name of one of the bands or subgroups of the Abenaki tribe,
located in what is now New England. The name Missisquoi is a corruption of the
band's name in their own language, Mazipskwik, which means "people of the flint place."
Descendants of the Mazipskwik or Missisquoi Abenakis
live in many places today, but especially in Vermont.
