many inquiries about the meaning of the
I am putting our answer on my web sites.
Just like the word Aquai, this is a Pequot/Mohegan
used time and time again by my Elders, now
While growing up on my reservation, Uncasvillage,
were never more than 13 families teaching
And we were taught our language correctly.
Aquine is something like the Algonquin word Aquene,
which means Peace, or I am a friend, I come in peace.
When using this word one would have both arms out,
about heart high with hands palm down,
to show that you have no weapon.
As we have no word for good-by, we use the
same word Aquine,
while on our way, this time, with the left hand
the heart, palm up and straight out, heart high.
The Pequot/Mohegan word Aquai means hello, when meeting
someone in passing, a friendly Aquai as you go by.
