On April 6, 1995 the Cowasuck Band of the Pennacook - Abenaki People (Cowasuck Band) filed for federal acknowledgment.
A petition letter was filed and posted in the Federal Register based on the Cowasuck Band Councils approval of tribal actions to petition the United States Department of the Interior - Bureau of Indian Affairs (BIA) for federal acknowledgment.
The petition letter was submitted in December 1994 and a formal notice of our petition was made by the BIA in the Federal Register of April 6, 1995, Volume 60, number 66, Page 17614.
The Cowasuck Band was assigned the BIA Petition Number 151. The Cowasuck Band remains an active petitioner at this time.
