Wabanaki Confederacy: Abenaki, Míkmaq, Penobscot, Passamaquoddy, Maliseet




The Wabanaki Confederacy (Waponahkiyik) was between five Algonquian tribes: the Abenaki, Míkmaq (Mi'kmaq or Micmac), Penobscot (Penawapskewi), Passamaquoddy (Pestomuhkati), and Maliseet (Wolastoqiyik or Malicite) tribes. Wabanaki (Dawnland) is the name of a geographical area, now called the New England states of Maine, Vermont and New Hampshire, and the Canadian Maritimes now called Nova Scotia and New Brunswick.

The Wabanakis were closely allied with the Innu and Algonquin, and with the Iroquoian-speaking Wyandot. With the 1749 treaty, Great Britain also joined the Wabanaki Confederacy.

The Wabanaki Confederacy disbanded in 1862, but the five Wabanaki nations still exist, and they remain friends and allies today.

Names for the abenaki indians
The Abenakis' name for themselves was and is Wôbanakiak (People of the Dawn Land).

Micmaq Indians
The traditional Mi'kmaq territory is concentrated in Nova Scotia and New Brunswick, but they also had a presence in parts of Quebec, Newfoundland, and Maine.

Passamaquoddy Indians
The Maliseet and Passamaquoddy people were closely related neighbors who shared a common language, but though the French called both tribes by the name "Etchimins," they always considered themselves politically independent.

Penobscott Indians
The Penobscot tribe, together with the Mi'kmaq, Maliseet, Passamaquoddy, and Abenaki Indians, were once members of the old Wabanaki Confederacy, enemies of the Iroquois.
