Lewiston's Canal Days celebration (held on the Fourth of July weekend) is one of the largest Independence Day celebrations in Maine, attracting thousands from all over New England. The Lewiston area was formerly inhabited by peoples of the Androscoggin tribe, including St. Francis and Arosaguntacook Indian tribes; they were driven out by English settlers during King Philip's War in 1675-1676. The Androscoggins were a tribe centered along the coast of southern Maine between York and Penobscot Bay (now known as Casco Bay). They spoke an Algonquian language or Eastern dialect similar to that spoken by their Wabanaki neighbors in present-day New Brunswick and Nova Scotia; this linguistic evidence suggests that they had been part of a larger tribal group extending into Canada since prehistoric times..
