    A little Indian boy asked his father, the big chief and witch doctor of the

    tribe, "Papa, why is it that we always have long names, while the white men

    have shorter names, John, Tex or Sam, for example?"

    His father replied, "Look, 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

    makeup 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 and 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,
