History:  

WAUKENABO Township (accented on the syllable next to the last, with the sound of ah) has the Ojibwe name of the eastern one of its series of three lakes. Rev. Joseph A. Gilfillan wrote it with a somewhat different spelling: "Wakonabo sagaiigun, the lake of the broth of wakwug or fish milt, or eggs-broth lake; or Broth-of-moss-growing-on-rocks-or-trees lake. The Indians use the latter in case of starvation. Both the above explanations are given by different Indians." A post office, 1902-16, was located in sections 10, 11, and 33 at various times.
