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.
