Inger, Minnesota


It is a cdp (Census Designated Place) within Leech Lake Nation. Below are several google earth photos of Inger, Minnesota and links to other Leech Lake Reservation communities. Inger has 56 housing units. According to a 2010 census, population of Inger, Minnesota is 212. Average per person household average is nearly 4.0 persons per housing unit which is normal for Chippewa settlements. Native Americans make up 92% of Ingers population. Inger is located in LLN northeast where old Winnibigoshish Reservation was located. It's 6.75 miles or 10.9 kilometers northeast of Lake Winnibigoshish. You pronounce Winnibigoshish as Winnibigoshiiz. That "iiz" is an Ojibway diminutive. A wikipedia page claims this lakes name as being derived from "Wiinibigoonshish." That is wrong. It supposedly means Filthy Water. There is an Ojibway word for water "nibi" in it yet "goonsh" is difficult to find. It could be from "Gosha" which has no equivalent in English. It means a repetion is often made like an echo. It should be written as "Win-ni-bi-go-shiiz." Translated it means "Filthy Water Little Echo" or "Filthy Water Little Fear" or "Filthy Water Little Smell" or whatever. Win is an Ojibway word for dirty and filthy. It's not a small lake which means when boating on it, take special caution.
