A little American Indian boy asked his father, the big chief of the tribe,
"Father, why is it that we always have long names, while the white men
have short names like Bill , Tex or Sam?"

His father replied, "My son, 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.

It is a symbol of our capacity to live and the life-force of our people.

It's really very simple and easy to understand.

Do you have any other questions for me,
'Little-Broken-Condom-Made-In-China' ?
