44. You don't want to be named "Walking Eagle"
My Northern Arapaho friends once gave that name to a know-it-all Easterner who had come to save them (the latest in a long line).

They named him Walking Eagle in a big ceremony. I asked the tribe's medicine man, Little Joe Duran, how they came up with the name. Little Joe said "that Yankee is so full of shit, all he could do is walk."
