St. Francis Indians: See Abenaki
"St. Francis Indians" is an alternate name that has sometimes been applied to the Western Abenaki tribe.
This name came from the Saint Francois River in Quebec, where the Abenaki First Nation of Odanak is located.
The people did not use this name themselves, and it is usually only found in historical documents.
