Indian Names

Twenty two people received Indian names from Pat Moses on August 31, 2014. A special name giving ceremony and give-away was held at the new wardance hall in Wellpinit, WA in honor of the recipients. 

The naming process caused us to become aware of several important facts:

  1. No one has kept a central list of Indian names of living tribal members.
  2. The lack of a common list may lead to duplicate names within the tribe. 
  3. If duplicates are found, families will have to decide if to change or modify names. 

In any case, here is the list of names given recently: indiannames
