First Nations languages * Native American cultures * Native heritage


"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.
