We, the Koasek Traditional Band of the Sovereign Abenaki Nation, trace the origin of our tribe back over 180 years. The Abenaki Nation has inhabited our land for over 10,000 years.
Our home land is N’dakinna, which incorporates Eastern Canada, and what are now known as the New England States. Our tribal band originated in what is now called Vermont. However, our families traveled all of N’dakinna and called the entire area home. We had no borders and even today, we don’t recognize the borders. N’dakinna is our homeland.
The Koasek Traditional Band of the Sovereign Abenaki Nation is divided into three (3) groups, located over the New England area: the Koasek of the Koas located in Vermont, the Koasek Traditional Band of Vermont headed by Chief Nathan Pero, and finally the Koasek Traditional Band of New Hampshire covering New England and Eastern Canada, headed by Chief Paul Bunnell.
