What does "Abenaki" mean?

The name Abenaki comes from the Algonquian (al-GONK-ee-un) word for "people from the east". It is also spelled Abanaki, Abnaki, or Abenaqui. Sometimes the Abenaki are also called the Wabanaki (WAH-buh-nah-kee), but this is actually the name of a group of four New England tribes, not just the Abenaki.
