Wikwemikong, Ontario


Located on Manitoulin Island in Ontario, is Wi-kwe-mi-kong. It means Bay Beaver Place in Ojibway. It's a locative. It should be pronounced as "Wi-Kwe-mi-kog." That "kog" rythmes with "vogue." In Ojibway, Bay is "Wikwed" and Beaver is "Amik." Notice it's locative? It's "og." It's added after "k" to make it a locative or mean "location." They can also use "A-mik-wi-kwe-dog." They always place an "n" in their locatives. Their locatives include all Ojibway vowels. Not only an "o" vowel. Below are several links to google earth photos of Wikwemikong, Ontario. Latest population (2016) for this Reserve, is 2,500. I don't know this towns population. I would guess this town has around 500 housing units or over 500 housing units. 2016's average household size for this Reserve is 2.5 persons per household. That could indicate this towns population is over 1,200 or even closer to 1,500. Most people live at Wi-kwe-mi-kong.
