Comments and insights on the name Sheyenne: | Edit

variant spelling of Cheyenne

The Cheyenne are a Native American nation that once inhabited the area between the Missouri and Arkansas rivers in the Great Plains, but as time went on, the Cheyenne people were eventually pushed more northwest (Montana, Wyoming and the Dakotas).

The word “Cheyenne” is French Canadian, originating from Sioux Dakota word “šahíyena” meaning “speak incoherently” from the elements “ša” (red) and “ya” (speak). The Dakotas considered their own Sioux-based language clear and understandable (i.e., “white talkers”); but the Algonquian-based language of the Cheyenne was unintelligible and alien sounding (hence “red talkers”).
