The Missisquoi Indian Tribe

"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.
