actually that is spelled SAPONI - a grouping of 4 Native American Indian Tribes from up and down the East Coast that banded together and called themselves Saponi and a couple of other Tribal names. They had all emigrated to North Carolina as small remnants of what was left of their own native tribes.


Cherokees are an Eastern Band of the Sioux Tribe of the upper Midwest.

Americans Indian maidens married white men but also many American Indian men would change their name to a white persons name if that white person saved their life or the life of a family member or friend and they would also change their name to the same as a white person they admired and respected.

Many American Indians liked the 3 & 4 names that white people had and named their children the same way, sometimes giving them the Indian name traditionally used plus 2 or 3 European names.
