Actually, these are two Algonquian languages, Mahican (Stockbridge) and Mohegan (dialects of which included Pequot, Narragansett, Montauk, or Niantic). They are closely related and have similar names--not unlike, say, Slovenian and Slovak--but are distinct. Unfortunately, the point is moot, for both languages are extinct.
