I saw this on a site desribing it....

It is generally accepted that the word Adirondack is derived from the Mohawk Indian word atirú:taks, literally meaning “tree eaters.” The acute accent indicates that the stress is on that syllable; the colon marks a preceding long vowel. Because there was no written Mohawk language when the name originated, probably in the late 1500s, various phonetic spellings of the word have been used.

Interesting :scratchhead:
