Walking eagle means its either crippled, handicapped, or lame in the culture and he thinks its an honorable name. Thats like giving a title floating fish [/quote] Greetings from the Rosebud Sioux Indian reservation!:hf: I am Native American (Rosebud Sioux); I have mixed feelings about this. In Lakota it would be pronounced, Wambli Mani, “Walking Eagle”. President Obama has done some good things for us (mostly shovel read projects), it created lots of jobs on the rez, I personally don’t think he has done anything to earn a Indian name, also he would have to go to a honoring ceremony to have the name bestowed upon him, it was not given in the correct way. I have in-laws with the last name Walking Eagle; it is there family last name, just like you have a last name. It doesn’t mean a injured bird, it is just a name. :peace: [/quote]
President BARACK OBAMA was invited to address a major gathering of the American Indian Nation two weeks ago in upstate New York.
He spoke for almost an hour about his plans for increasing every Native American's present standard of living. He referred to his time as a U.S. Senator and how he had voted for every Native American issue that came to the floor
of the Senate.
Although President Obama was vague about the details of his plans, he seemed most enthusiastic and spoke eloquently about his ideas for helping his "Red sisters and brothers".
At the conclusion of his speech, the Tribes presented Obama with a plaque inscribed with his new Indian name, "Walking Eagle".
The proud President Obama accepted the plaque and then departed in his motorcade to a fundraiser, waving to the crowds.
A news reporter later asked the group of chiefs how they came to select the new name they had given to the President. They explained that "Walking Eagle" is the name given to a bird so full of shit it can no longer fly.
