I am not sure if I posted this thread in the right category.
Anyway, I am wondering if there is any algonquin online community, a bit like this forum. I tried searching for one, but Google only gave results about stupid colleges.
Any idea???
Peace.

I did a quick search for Algonquin chat rooms and found quite a few, not sure if this helps or not.

If you can't find any, you can always start your own?

I need to find algonquins to start a community. It is hard to make a community of 0 persons.

From my search it appears like "Algonquin" can refer to an area or a group of Native American tribes and their collective language family.
I assume you are looking for a blog on the tribe or nation.

According to one site the Alqonquins proper are an indigenous people who live in 9 communities in Canada.
The name comes from a bowdlerized French version of a native word for "our allies".
The name the people call themselves is Anishnabe, or original person.

They may add "Algonquin" to the native name to refer to the specific group.

Knowing from Native American news sites like The Buffalo Post (see for example buffalopost.net...) that many tribes today prefer names for themselves in their own language, it may be worth looking them up.

Here is an interactive site from the Anishnaabe people, which includes three tribes of the Algonquin language family:

There's also a site with a blog by Dr. Lynn Gehl, who is Algonquin Anishnaabe kwe, which is fascinating.

The blog section is called Black Face Blogging:

I'm not sure that's the specific group you are looking for, but I do hope that helps.


Facebook also as an Anishnabe page (Odawa, Ojibwe, Algonquin), although it doesn't seem to have any activity, although the 700 likes imply that there's no shortage of interest.

Searching for Anishnabe gives a fairly large number of results, ranging from music, art and language to environmental issues across divers sites.
The Long Point First Nations is an Algonquin Ashinabeg community of 800 members in Western Quebec, and their site is linked to social media:
anishnabeaki.com...
There's also the Ashinabeg News which is distributed by the Union of Ontario Indians:
www.anishinabek.ca...
