"Kichesipirini" is the name of one of the Algonquin First Nations of Canada, located along the border between Quebec and Ontario. The name means "people of the big river" in Algonquin. Actually, it literally means "person of the big river"-- the plural form is Kichesipiriniwek-- but today the proper name Kichesipirini is used in both singular and plural contexts. The Kichesipirini Algonquins speak a Northern Algonquin dialect.
