Michael Linn's comments on "Native American" vs. "American Indian"
were really interesting news to me. But what, literally, do
"Anishinabe" and "Assiniboine" mean? in what language? ADS members are
well-read, I know, but this I can't parse without help...
Well, related (sort of) is the fact that both "Navajo" and "Apache" are
hispanicizations of what the Pueblos called the peoples in question, both
of whom call themselves "Dine'" in their own Athebascan languages...
