Their housing units are located along Highway 11, on Winnipeg Rivers west and along Northshore Road, on Winnipeg Rivers east. In Ojibway, they name this location "at Outlet." It's a locative. They usually spell it this way "Zaa'giing." There is no double "ee" vowel in Ojibway. It's pronounced as "Za-gi-ec." For some reason whites use an "n" in Ojibway locatives. Instead of "eng" it should be "eg." Translated, it means "At Outlet Place." As mentioned, it's a locative.
