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:
- No one has kept a central list of Indian names of living tribal members.
- The lack of a common list may lead to duplicate names within the tribe.
- 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
