Chief Indian Long Name
How Native Indians Derive Their Names

A little Indian boy asked his father, the big chief and witch doctor of the tribe, “Why is it that we always have long names while the white men have shorter names - Bill, Tex or Sam, for example?”

His father replied, “My son, our names represent a symbol, a sign or a poem for our culture. Not like the white men who live all together and repeat their names from generation to generation. Also, it is part of our make-up that in spite of everything, we survive.

For example, your sister’s name is ‘Small Romantic Moon Over The Lake’ because on the night she was born there was a beautiful moon reflected in the lake.

Then there’s your brother, ‘Big White Horse of the Prairies’ because he was born on a day that the Big White Horse who gallops over the prairies of the world appeared near our camp. It is a symbol of our capacity to live and the life force of our People.”

“It’s very simple and easy to understand. Do you have any other questions ‘Little Broken Condom Made in China?’ ”
