Medweganoonind (recorded in English as Med-we-gan-on-int, meaning "Who is Heard Spoken To") was a chief of the Ojibwe Tribe at Red Lake, Minnesota.

Medweganoonind was a man of great physical stature; tall, large, and strong.

According to Gilfillan, "Nobility was stamped upon all his actions and words and his looks...He was very level-headed, true to his friends, patient under seeming neglect, unselfish, and of such a broad vision and sound judgment as would have made him an ideal ruler anywhere."[1]
