Pennacook Indian Bands, Gens and Clans

Many tribes have sub-tribes, bands, gens, clans and phratry.  Often very little information is known or they no longer exist.  We have included them here to provide more information about the tribes.

Amoskeag (namos ‘small fish’, kkig ‘to take’: ‘one takes small fish’). A small tribe or band of the Pennacook confederacy, living about 1675 in a village of the same name at Amoskeag falls, on Merrimac r., in Hillsboro co., N. H. This village was the residence of Wannalanset, head chief of the Pennacook confederacy, son of Passaconnaway.
