Akonapi Indians.  A people mentioned in the ancient Walam Olum record of the Delawares1 , with whom they fought during their migrations. Brinton, who identities them with the Akowini of the same tradition, thinks it probable that they lived immediately north of Ohio River in Ohio or Indiana. He regards Akowini as “correspondent” with Sinako, and Towakon with Towako; the latter he identities with the Ottawa, called by the  Delawares Taway. If this identification be correct, it is likely that the Akonapi were the Sinago branch of the Ottawa.
