    ^This, because it's exactly what came into my mind when I read through the article. Wtf is he doing letting his sweet name get an ass kicking like that.

    PLD/WAR IRL?

    Edit: Beaten...

    Edit 2: Seriously though, kick ass name, imagine having to deliver a speech in front of hundreds of people:

    "And now for our pro-gay rights discussion, let me introduce... Tank Standing Buffalo!"

    I was skimming through, and it sounded like zombie attack, then I re-read it, and it was not so. I was kind of disappointed.

    If Tank Standing Buffalo was from one of the First Nations in Alberta he's probably of a Cree or Blackfoot speaking nation, who use that naming system like other peoples of that language group.

    As a quick aside, the PC/approved ethnicity terms used by the Government of Canada are:
    - Aboriginal peoples, encompassing all "indigenous" (not really a PC term to use these days) peoples in Canada including First Nations, Inuit, and Metis
    - First Nations, peoples who are of aboriginal descent but are not Inuit or Metis
    - Inuit, specifically a distinct ethno-linguistic group living in the Arctic seperate from First Nations and Inuit peoples. (Used to be called "Eskimos" but that's a pretty derogatory term these days)
    - Metis, people who can trace their heritage, through the matrilinial line, to a union of a First Nations woman and a non-Aboriginal man. To be an actual Metis it's even more specific as coming from a woman who was of the Cree, Ojibway, Algonquin, Saulteux, and Menomiee and a man who was usually French (Canadien) or Scottish, living in Rupert's Land. I think DINA is specific about who is an actual Metis person and other mixed-race Aboriginal/Non-Aboriginal unions don't count for Metis but may still count for other status.
    Interesting.
