Vermont Indian Tribes

Abnaki Indians. An Abnaki band known as the Missiassik was at one time settled on Missisquoi River in Franklin County.

Mahican Indians. Bands of the Mahican hunted in the southwestern and western parts of the State and made temporary settlements from time to time. One Mahican village (Winooskeek) is thought to have been located at the mouth of Winooski River. (See New York.)

Pennacook Indians. The eastern margins of Vermont were occupied by the Pennacook, who must have hunted considerably within its borders. (See New Hampshire.)

Pocomtuc Indians. The northernmost bands of the Pocomtuc extended into the southern parts of the State. (See Massachusetts.)

  1. I want to know what tribes resided in Addison County Vermont. My great grandfather, Arthur Whitney was half Native American and half English. He was born and raised in Goshen Vermont. My mother says that the tribes were Iroquoi and Algonquin. I’m trying to get to know more about my Indian ancestors and who they were.
