Potawatomi (J. B. Bottineau, speaking Chippewa and Cree fluently, gives Potawatanubk or Potawaganik, i. e. 'People of the place of the fire,' as the primary form of the name. This derivation is strongly confirmed by the Huron name Asistagueroon (Champlain, 1616), for Otsistă'ge`rono', likewise signifying 'People of the place of fire,' which was applied by them to their enemies who dwelt in 1616 on the west shores of Lake Huron. The Jesuit Relation for 1671 (42, 1858) has the following passage: "Four nations make their abode here, namely, those who bear the name Puans (i. e., the Winnebago), who have always lived here as in their own country, and who have been reduced to nothing from being a very flourishing and populous people, having been exterminated by the Illinois, their enemies; the Potawatomi, the Sauk, and the Nation of the Fork (la Fourche) also live here, but as strangers (or foreigners), driven by the fear of Iroquois [The Neuters and Ottawa] from their own lands which are between the lake of the Hurons and that of the Illinois."
