- proper noun An extinct
Abenaki( Algonquian) language, also called Penobscot, spoken in parts of the northeastern United States and in Quebec, related to Western Abenaki.
Sorry, no etymologies found.
The Eastern Abenaki were concentrated in Maine east of New Hampshire's White Mountains, while the Western Abenaki lived west of the mountains across Vermont and New Hampshire to the eastern shores of Lake Champlain.
I doubt that this is right. “moose” is from Eastern Abenaki.
