    i respect the naming

    I respect the naming. I hold my own name close to me as well as my spirit name too. But i have many "pet" names like Stacks Alot =). but i asked only a few people about the word snow, because i was curious too. I got an answer from a few so i thank you for your help anyway. I do respect the Traditional way and been raised so. and I strongly believe that this is a part of a name. this also will be done semi secretly , not in the spectators eye. Do not fret. I treat everything with respect.
    Thank you again, AHO,
    Stacks_Alot

      You should some of the "Naming Ceremonies" that they do at certain powwows in Mass and CT. It's nothing to see an "elder" naming 20 to 30 people at a time, in the arena with a mic. I was at one where the MC actually announced that if you wanted an indian name to come to the arbor and you could be part of the naming ceremony.
      I'm not mean....You're just a sissy

        there was a guy in OH who was ndn and a medicine person and well known that was putting anyone who wanted a name on a little hill for an hour...then he would give you a "name" in a "ceremony" AND you even got a certificate with your new name on it...all for a price of course

            ndng,


            Hey that's where I got my two indian names, in Mass and CT!

            In Mass I was given the sacred name:

            "Two Hamburger Buns walking down the Interstate"

            In CT, I was given the spiritual name:

            "Laughing Kidney Gravy!"
            Powwows will continue to evolve in many directions. It is inevitable.

                            I think I'm going to write a book of NDN names - like they have in the Pregancy and Birth section of any book store.

                            Anyone care to contribute? If you do - I'll include you in the dedication and maybe give you cut of the profits.

                            Bonus points if your list is alphabetized.

                            I already have the title "Truly Authentic Names for your Native American Heart"

                                I'm sure the names will be really good new agey and made up!

                                And we'll make a load of dough!
