    Shiko Waka ( I think that's spelled right...:( ), I think it's the Souix's word for horse... litterally translates ito "Big Dog"

    Cherrokee ( my mom had a horse named that)

    Little Worrior ( another of mom's)

    I have a TB mare named Saskatchewan, and her first foal is Nanjemoy..

    Saskatchewan is a province in Canada... do I have that correct Canadians? And also a name of an Indian tribe... I think, LOL... Nanjemoy is a little town down here, but also the name of a local Indian Tribe...

    Wow! on the site that Cathy posted! I am also interested in Indian names & culture, etc.
    Just off the top of my head, I was just going to say Comanche, Lakota, Tonka (my fav), but now - this opens up a whole new world.

    Thanks Cathy and thanks to crazy4apps for bringing up the subject
