Wendigo (cunoscut și ca windigo, weendigo, windago, windiga, witiko sau wihtikow) este o creatură demonică din mitologia poporului Algonquian. Este descrisă ca fiind o bestie asemănătoare unui câine, ce se hrănește cu oameni, fiind o înfățișare a lăcomiei și excesului. Conform legendei, oricine a mâncat carne de om, se va transforma într-un wendigo.
