Native American Indian language * Native American people * Native ancestry


"Temiskaming" is one of several English versions of an Algonquin place name, Temikaming, which means "by the deep waters." Since Algonquin was not traditionally a written language, the spellings of Algonquin words in European languages sometimes vary a lot. The spelling "Temiskaming" was widely used in historical documents, but is more rarely used today. The Temiskaming Algonquins speak a Northern Algonquin dialect.
