Fox/Foxe Indian Tribe

 Native American Nations |                     

 

Foxes (trans. in plural of wagosh, 'red fox,' the name of a clan).
     An Algonquian tribe, so named, according to Fox tradition recorded by Dr William Jones, because once while some Wagohugi, members of the Fox clan, were hunting, they met the French, who asked who they were; the Indians gave the name of their clan, and ever since the whole tribe has been known by the name of the Fox clan. Their own name for themselves, according to the same authority, is Měshkwa`kihŭg', 'red-earth people,' because of the kind of earth from which they are supposed to have been created. They were known to the Chippewa and other Algonquian tribes as Utŭgamig, 'people of the other shore'.
