Menominees, North American aborigines, a branch of the Algonquian family, whose huntinggrounds were in the present states of Wisconsin and Michigan; here the name still survives in the river Menominee, flowing to Lake Michigan, and Menominee county in the state of Michigan. The tribe itself, at one time very numerous, is now reduced to about 1,300 persons, confined to the Green Bay Agency, where they have made some progress in European culture.
