According to a recent post in the International Business Edge, the small town of Sequim, WA, has an Identity Crisis â€¦ big time:
â€œThe U.S. town of Sequim, Washington has long claimed that â€˜in the native language of the Sâ€™Klallam tribe, â€˜Sâ€™Kwimâ€™ means quiet waters,â€™ as indicated on the town website. However, a linguist recently revealed that a correct translation would actually be â€˜a place for going to shoot.â€™â€
â€œQuiet Watersâ€ or â€œA place for going to shoot.â€ Quite a contrast, donâ€™t you think?
For more insight, you can Listen to the story on NPR.org or read the article by the Associated Press.
With shooting potentially involved, I wonder why NRA.org hasnâ€™t picked up the story!
