Anishinaabe (original people). Today the Anishinaabe have two tribes Algonquin and Ojibway/Ojibwe/Chippewa. Ojibwe & Chippewa are the versions of the same word pronounced differently because of English versus French accents (placing an "O" in front of Chippewa results in the word "O'chippewa"). Ojibwe is used in Canada. While "Chippewa" is used in the U.S., it is not approved of by the Anishinabe people themselves. The word "Ojibwe," or "Chippewa," comes from the Algonquin word "otchipwa" (to pucker), referring to the distinctive puckered seam of Ojibwe moccasins.
Anishinaabe (original people). Today the Anishinaabe have two tribes, Algonquin and Ojibway/Ojibwe/Chippewa. Algonquin is probably a French corruption of either the Maliseet word elehgumoqik, "our allies," or the Mi'kmaq place name Algoomaking, "fish-spearing place."
