Wawanesa, Manitoba. R0K 2G0. Pop. 594. * Wawanesa was originally called Sipiweske. The word Sipiweske (pronounced similarly to "Sip-O-Whiskey”) means "light through the trees" in Cree. In 1890, under the influence of the temperance movement, the town changed it's name to Wawanesa, which may come from the Ojibwa word waa'oonesii for "Whip-poor-will”. * * * * #canadianpostalproject #canadian #canada #canadapost #thepostalproject @canadapostagram #postoffice #exploremanitoba #manitoba #smalltown #exploreCanada #rsa_rural #archilovers #postal #snailmail #architecturelovers #historic #architecturelovers #architectureporn #oldbuildings #youvegotmail IG: @CanadianPostalProject Email: CanadianPostalProject@gmail.com
