Thanks for the fascinating info, Rapaire. It's remarkable to think of North American Indians spending years living in England or Europe in the 1500's...then going back to tell the other Indians what they saw there. Boy, it must have been some culture shock!
Knowing Spanish rather well, I was amused for years that the FIC in the Lone Ranger stories was called "Tonto". I always wondered how they marketed those same characters in the Spanish-speaking world, as they must have done. They simply could not have called that character "Tonto" in a Spanish-language culture. It would have been totally ridiculous. I think they probably changed his name to something else instead, and if so....to what???
