Algonquin Grandmother

Q: Hi, my family recently discovered that my great grandmother was Algonquin. She died when my grandfather was two and his father remarried so we have very little information on her and only one picture. I was wanting to know what the Algonquin word for grandmother is. Thank you very much for your assistance.
