"Nehirawewin" is an alternate name sometimes used for the Innu and Atikamekw languages. It is most often used to refer to historical dialects of Montagnais Innu which were recorded by early French colonists. Montagnais speakers in modern times call their language Innu-Aimun instead. Atikamekw speakers call their language Nehiramowin.
