Ogema (Ogemas)

"Ogema" is an Anishinabe word for a chief or traditional tribal leader. It is pronounced oh-gee-mah, with a hard "g" sound as in "go." There are also several locations in the US and Canada with "Ogema" as a place name, including towns in Wisconsin and Minnesota and a lake and mountain in Ontario.
