Barriere Lake (Lac Barrière)

"Barriere Lake" is the name of one of the Algonquin First Nations of Quebec. Their name is said to come from the French translation of an Algonquin place name meaning "stone weir," referring to a natural barrier of rocks that existed by the mouth of the lake. The Algonquin name for their band is Mitcikinabik Inik or Mitchikanibikok Inik. The Barriere Lake Algonquins speak a Northern Algonquin dialect.
