Winneway (Long Point Algonquins)
"Winneway" is the name of one of the Algonquin First Nations of Quebec.
Their name is said to come from a French translation of an Algonquin place name, probably meaning either "running water"
or "troubled waters." In English they are known as the Long Point Algonquins. In Algonquin, they often refer to themselves
as Winnewayinini (people of Winneway.) The Winneway Algonquins speak a Northern Algonquin dialect.
