Where did the Algonquian Native Americans live?

The northeastern Algonquian were clustered in two areas.

One group lived near the Great Lakes in what is now the north-central United States and south-central Canada. The Great Lakes Algonquian tribes included the Ojibwa (also called the Chippewa), the Menominee, and the Potawatomi.

Other Algonquian lived along the coast of the Atlantic Ocean from present-day Nova Scotia, Canada, to North Carolina.

Among these groups were the Micmac, the Eastern and Western Abenaki, the Wampanoag, the Narragansett, the Lenape, and the tribes of the Powhatan Confederacy.
