  1. Hot indian spring? It's geotagged in the USA :) Posted 4 years ago
    1. lol - I think she may have meant Indianan, though the legend goes that when Columbus arrived in the Americas he first called the Natives that he met Indians because he was trying to sail round the world to India. Whether the story was apocryphal or not (and Columbus by all accounts was a good navigator and would not have made that mistake..) the name stuck for quite some time so we do have terms like Indian Summer (warm fall days) and Indian corn (multicolored decorative corn) and many place names that include Indian - Indian Springs, Indian Falls, Indian Creek, Indian Grove, etc.. These days it's more appropriate to use the term Native American or in Canada, First Nations. Posted 4 years ago, modified 4 years ago
      1. A lot more subtle than some of our dutch nicknames and legends. A little-known dutch term is an "Old Bitch Summer", which also means a late summer. Nowadays a lot of people get offended by it, not knowing the term very well, as it originates from female goddesses. Posted 4 years ago
