Odishkwaagamii First Nation

"Odishkwaagamii" is an alternate name for the Algonquin people. This name literally means "lake's end" in their own language, and was originally used by Ojibwe people in Ontario to refer to their Algonquin and Nipissing kinfolk, who in turn sometimes used it to refer to themselves. Different spellings of the name "Odishkwaagamii" include Odishkwągamģ, Otickwągamģ, Odickwągamģ, Odishkwagami, Dishkwagami, Dishkwaagmii, Odishkwaagamiig, Dishkwaagmiig, and Odickwągamģk. (The forms ending in "k" are plurals.)
