. . . . . . . Answer to question - October 2002 I have received many response to the inquiry from the Danish journalist. No one has heard of any of these tribal names, other than them sounding like a mix between Sioux and Apache. Thanks for getting back to me, or sending your answers to Do directly. Here is a copy of the e-mail I sent to Do. It includes one of the messages I received (from Diane Tells His Name). I sent Diane's message (along with a few others) along to Do. ---------------- Do, So far, of the 1200 people on my e-mail newsletter list, no one is familiar with any of the names, other than it sounding like a mix of the names Sioux and Apache. A few things could be true, but they would be similar to many other primitive cultures throughout history and the world. I checked a few of the language words and found matches in eastern European languages. Maybe these people were Huns (as in Hungary) or one of the other eastern European or other tribes from the steppes. This could also be from a dream world this person created. The common (and derisive) phrase for non-Indians who make up their own perceived attributes of tribal life is "Wannabes" or the "Wannabe Tribe." They "want-to-be" Indian so much, they start calling themselves Dances-in-the-Moonlight, wear crystals and drink special teas. In general, I have no problems with people who wish to emulate the positive aspects of American Indian life as long as they do so out of respect. Others feel it is an insult. In a related problem, other feel some are trying to steal customs and traditions. This is especially true of those non-Indians who charge people to participate in such events as sweat-lodges and other religious or mystical practices. There are many different tribes with different customs & beliefs. There is no ONE correct belief or tradition. This would be like an American saying they were acting like an European. As you know, common practices among the British, Danish, Greek, Basque and Sicilians are quite different from each other. Good luck with your work and Wado (Cherokee for Thank you) for making an effort to find the truth, Phil ------------------- --- Do Windfeld

Thanks again for all the help and response. Do ----------------- Thanks, Ill pass it along.
