The tribes of that area were the Ojibwe or Chippewa, the Menominee, Potawatomi, Miami, Sauk (Sac), Fox (Mesquakie) and Kickapoo. All had their own language, and there were of…ten different words in each language, so there was never a single term for "house". For example, Ojibwe words for house include waaginogaan, wiigiwaam, miigiwaamens. In Menominee some of the words for a house are apa:kiwika:n, matae:peh, ne:k, we:kewam, owe:kew.
