"Sokoki" is the name of one of the important bands or subgroups of the Abenaki tribe,
located in what is now Vermont.
The name Sokoki is a corruption of the band's name in their own language, Ozogwakiak,
which means "breakaway people."
Descendants of the Sokoki Abenakis live in many places today, but especially in Vermont, where
there is a St. Francis/Sokoki Abenaki tribe petitioning for official recognition. Their website
can be found here.
