Indigenous People

At the time of contact with Europeans, indigenous nations in the Western Hemisphere had words and terms to describe both themselves as well as the other peoples around them. It is important to note that what we think of today as “tribes” were often confederated or allied groups of differing and independent people who would come together on occasion for a variety of reasons. Most tribal nations referred to themselves (in their own respective languages) as “The People,” or something similar. For example, the Cherokee referred to themselves as Ani-Yunwiya (spelled in their own syllabary), which means “Principal People.” And although each of the Ocˇhéthi Šakówiŋ, or “Seven Council Fires,”had its own name (e.g., Sihásapa or “Blackfoot,” Oóhenuŋpa or “Two Kettles”), the people known more broadly as “Sioux” (which is itself a European corruption of an Ojibwe pejorative) knew, and still know, themselves as Lakȟóta or “Allies.”
