    wondered about before. Now I know how the Snake tribe, river etc. got their name - by their sign, meaning salmon people. I guess salmon wiggle just like a snake. Having grown up by the snake River, I nor anyone else I know knew why  it was called the Snake. Someone just asked me the other day about the how the snake got its name. Now if I can only remember who asked me, I can tell them.
