Native American Indian ancestry
"Severn Ojibwe" is a tribal name referring to a northern Anishinaabe group also known as the
Oji-Cree. The term "Severn Ojibwe"
is particularly used in linguistics to refer to the distinct dialect of Ojibwe spoken by these people, who have borrowed many
features and vocabulary words from the neighboring Cree language into their own. They call themselves Anishinini
or Anishinabe in their own language. "Severn" is not a Native name, but rather comes from the English name for a river
that runs through their territory in what is now Ontario.
