  1. Last names is kind of interesting. Like, with Indians, there are several sources of surnames. Some just seem random, like mine. (Though you could argue that Bryan Brewer ending Prohibition on Pine Ridge makes some Oglala Brewers’ name meaningful.)

    Others are pseudo=patronymic; there are five generations of Crow Dogs, all tracing to the original Crow Dog, who assassinated Spotted Tail, leading to the whole jurisdictional confusion that plagues reservations to this day. But the Lakota at least didn’t have surnames. And it’s tough to explain non-unilineal kinship exists to people schooled in years of pop anthropology.
