The Sokokis Indian Tribe
The name "Sokokis" refers to one of the important bands or subgroups of the Abenaki tribe,
historically located in what is now Vermont.
Sokokis is a corruption of the band's name in their own language, Ozogwakiak,
which means "breakaway people."
Descendants of the Abenaki Sokokis live in many places today, but especially in Vermont.
