Noquet Indians (No´ke, ‘bear foot’; another name for the Bear gens (see Noka) of the Chippewa. W. J.) An Algonquian tribe located by the earliest French writers about Noquet bay, at the mouth of Green Bay, extending north across the peninsula to Lake Superior.  In 1659 they were attached to the mission at St. Michel, together with the Menominee, Winnebago, and others.

In 1761 Jefferys, probably on the authority of some recent French writer, says they were on the island at the mouth of Green Bay, formerly occupied by the Potawatomi.  They were never prominent as a tribe, and were probably absorbed by the Chippewa or the Menominee.
