"Maniwaki" is an Algonquin place name in Quebec. Maniwaki is a town that is located beside the Kitigan Zibi First Nation,
which is for this reason sometimes known as the Maniwaki tribe. Maniwaki literally means "Mary's land" in Algonquin
("Mani" is a traditional Algonquin variant of "Mary" or "Marie.")
The Maniwaki Algonquins speak a Southern Algonquin dialect.
