Michigan is known by quite a few nicknames, but the two most oft-used are the Great Lakes State and the Wolverine State. It is the birthplace of both the automotive industry and soul music and is bounded by 4 out of the 5 Great Lakes and named after Lake Michigan, which is a butchered pronounciation of the Ojibwe (or Chippewa) word mishigami, which means "Big Water." Its capital is Lansing and its largest city is Detroit.
