Missiquoi Territory

The Missiquoi or the Missisquoi are a Native American tribe located in the Wabanaki region of what now is northern Vermont and southern Quebec. This Algonquian group is a sub-group of the Abenaki who lived along the eastern shore of Lake Champlain at the time of the European incursion. Their name Missiassik, which "Missisquois" is derived, means "place of flint" in the Abenaki language; or alternatively, from "Masipskoik a word that means "place where there are boulders", more specifically "boulders point."[1]

Today, the Missisiquoi Council Abenaki Nation, an unrecognized tribe, has its operations based in Swanton, Vermont.[2]
