"Waginogan" is an Algonquin and Ojibwe word for a type of dome-shaped birchbark house, more commonly known as a "wigwam" (the word
for the same type of dwelling in the Abenaki language.) Waginogan is pronounced wah-gih-no-gahn,
with hard "g" sounds as in "go." Waginogans were made by bending flexible wooden poles into a rounded frame, then covering the frame
with sheets of birchbark and reed mats.
