Algonquin tribes who lived in regions from New England to Lake Superior
They are the names the Colonial Americans adapted most
The Wolf Moon , January amid the cold
and deep snows of midwinter,

outside the Indian Villages
Hence the name for the January's Full Moon

the Goddess Mother aspect,
Praise to Cerridwen,
