Kat, another interesting trend here is that groups are starting to be called by their real names. Previously they were called by the names their neighbours called them (the Europeans having met the said neighbours first), and often those names were not complimentary (e.g., "Eskimo", a Dené word, means "people who eat raw meat" or something similar -- their name for themselves is "Inuit"). Either that, or the Europeans couldn't pronounce the name, so made something up (e.g., "Huron").
In this locality, people who used to be called "Blackfoot" are now called "Siksika", people who used to be called "Sarcee" are now "Tsu'tina" (I hope I spelled that right), the "Bloods" are "Kainai", and the "Stoneys" are "Lakoda" (yes, they're Siouxans -- it's a form of "Dakota").
If only symbolically, it's a gesture of respect.
