Ogima (Ogimas)

"Ogima" is an Ojibwe and Algonquin 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 "Ogima" as a place name, including lakes in Michigan and Ontario and a waterfall in Michigan.
