Assawoman W R

I am making a video on Delaware. I visited Assawoman Wildlife Refuge and must know the origin of the name Assawoman and its correct pronunciation. I wish to avoid improper connotations from viewers of my video. Thank you. Robert Makara

The spelling has been shifted over time from Assawaman, which an Algonquin word meaning "middle fishing stream."
