Re: Native American Names for Mars? Help!?! - Discussion

Hi all...

My first post here. I've been looking up other cultures' names for the planet Mars. Many are easy to find because they're used in naming the valleys on the planet. But of all the cultures' names I've found, I still haven't found much of Native Amercan name for the planet - just the Incan name "Auqakah," and the Abenaki tribe of Quebec's "Misengwe."

I feel like there must be many more, but I've done numerous searches and have found nothing. I've seen a lot on Native American names for stars, so I figure all the tribes must have SOME name for Mars. Any help out there?

Hi well it apears I either can't figure out how to work the bold and italiks and text collor or they don't work.
Anyway I am new and was looking for another cool science forum. I hope I found one I like. Also hope there are live people on here on the weekends :;):

As for Mars not having many native Amarican names I hadn't thought of that untill reading this post. The North Amarican Natives call the strars, grand father stars and we are the star children. as for names to be sure there are many famouse chiefs one could pick from or several legendary places and things mentioned in native traditions. If interested I could find a few.

Well that's it for me for tonight I just more or like wanted to intruduce myself, I didn't see a new comers post anwhere.
