The Passamaquoddy are a Native American tribe of the Algonquian-speaking Wabanaki Confederacy, which includes the Abenaki, Maliseet, Mi’kmaq, and Penobscot.
They are the indigenous people of the area known as the Wabanaki Confederacy, which includes the Canadian provinces of New Brunswick and Quebec, and the US states of Maine and New Hampshire.
The Passamaquoddy have lived in the area for thousands of years, though their exact origin is unknown. The Passamaquoddy have a rich culture and history, and have a strong connection to the land and the waters of the region. They were known for their fishing and hunting skills, and were also skilled traders and artisans.
The Passamaquoddy were involved in the French and Indian War, and later in the Revolutionary War. They were allies of the British during the war, and after the war many of them moved to Canada.
In the 19th century, the tribe was involved in a number of treaties with the US government, which led to the loss of much of their traditional lands.
Today, the Passamaquoddy are a federally recognized tribe in the US, and have a reservation in Maine. They have a strong presence in the area and are actively involved in preserving their culture and history.
