While the name certainly may translate as Portage (I didn't have this information), the relationship to the lodge is that it was the name given to a Wampanoag or Naiset village of Christian indians that was located just southeast of Plymouth, Massachusetts. Manomet was the closest Indian village to the location of the council camp for Manomet Lodge, which was Camp Squanto, located in So. Carver, MA.
