Interesting Facts About The Algonquin
What Are The Algonquin?
Did you know the word "Quebec" "Kebec" mean "Where The River Narrows" in Algonquin!

They lived in Southern Canada, & Northern Unites States Of America!

They didn't live in teepees like other villages they lived in houses like wigwams & Longhouses!

A lot of people have adopted a method that the Algonquin invented:
Native American cooking tended to be simple. Most Native Americans preferred to eat their food very fresh, without many spices. This was different in Mexico and Central America, where Indians tended to use less fresh meat and more spices in their dishes, including hot peppers, cumin, and chocolate seasonings. Meat was usually roasted over the fire or grilled on hot stones. Fish was often baked or smoked. Soups and stews were popular in some tribes. Corn was eaten in many different ways, including corn-on-the-cob, popcorn, hominy, and tortillas and corn bread baked in clay ovens. Indians in some tribes enjoyed fruit puddings or maple candy for dessert.
In most Algonquian tribes, each family lived in a village of small round buildings called wigwams. Some of the other Algonquians they lived in longhouses. Some northeastern Algonquians built longhouses like the Iroquois. The California Algonquians lived in redwood-plank houses. Some Algonquian villages, particularly in the east, were permanent and had fortified walls around them. Other Algonquian tribes moved their houses frequently.
Traditional clothes, headdresses, and hairstyles were different in every tribe, and Algonquin Indians could tell each other's tribal identity from their style of dress. One article of clothing shared by all the Algonquian Indian tribes was moccasins. Algonquin men generally wore breechcloths with leather leggings, and Algonquin women wore skirts or dresses. In northern Algonquin tribes, Indians also wore a shirt, tunic, or mantle, but in southern tribes and in California, they went shirtless. In colonial times, many Algonquins adapted European fashions such as cloth blouses and jackets, decorating them with fancy beadwork. Today, members of most Algonquian tribes wear their traditional clothing only at ceremonial events such as a wedding.
Most Algonquian Indians made birchbark or dugout canoes for transportation. Northern Algonquin tribes used snowshoes and dogsleds to travel in winter. Mostly they walked on foot. Compared to today they did not have cars or buses or trains or going by air. They limited options to travel.
About The Algonquin
The Algonquin were a Canadian / American Tribe who live in Southern Canada & Northern United States Of America. Their language was very important to the rest of the world or society TODAY because the word Québec & Canada were BOTH NAMED FROM THE ALGONQUIN LANGUAGE!

Wigwam & Longhouse
What does "Algonquin" Mean?
"Algonquin" was the French name for the tribe. The French were probably trying to pronounce elehgumoqik, the Maliseet word for "our allies," or Algoomaking, a Mi'kmaq place name. The Algonquins call themselves Anishnabe, which means "original person." (The plural is Anishnabek.) However, Algonquins use Anishnabek to refer to other Indians also. So when they are specifically referring to their tribe, they usually use "Algonquins" or "Algonkins" to distinguish themselves.
