Algonquin (Anicinâbemowin)

Algonquin is an Algonquian language spoken in Quebec and Ontario in Canada by 1,800 people, according to the 2011 census. 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").
