"Father, why is it that we always have long names, while the white men have
short names like Bill , Tex or Sam?"
"My son", replied his father, "Our names represent a symbol, a sign, or a poem in
our culture, not like the white men who live all together and merely repeat their names from generation to generation.
For example, your sister's name is Small Romantic Moon Over The Lake because,
on the night she was born, there was a beautiful moon reflected in the lake.
Then there's your brother, White Horse of the Prairies, because he was born on
a day that the big white horse who gallops over the prairies appeared near our
camp and is a symbol of our capacity to live and of the life force of our people. It's really very simple and easy to understand".
