@Ochoin, "Hau" – pronounced as "how" – is the Sioux word for "hello" when spokenm bu a man. A woman says "han."
So the movie "how" has some roots in reality.

POLL DESCRIPTION

Personal logo ochoin Supporting Member of TMP observes:

Being an astute type of chap, I'm fairly sure no real native Americans ever said, "How!" or "White man speak with forked tongue."

But was the phrase, 'It is a good day to die." in the vocabulary of any native American tribe?

Are there other laughable cliches in this genre you'd like to add?
