Algonquin is an Algonquian language spoken in Quebec and Ontario in Canada by about 2,680 people. Algonquin is closely related to Ojibwe and is considered a divergent Ojibwe dialect by many people. It also closely related to Odawa, Oji-Cree and Abenaki.

Some speakers of Algonquin call themselves Anicinàbe ("original people") and their language Anicinâbemowin ("speech of the original people"). Other Algonquin communities call themselves Omàmiwininiwak ("down-stream men"), and their language Omàmiwininìmowin ("speech of the down-stream men").
