Stone Sioux

"Stone Sioux" is an alternate name for the Assiniboine tribe. It was an English translation of the Ojibwe word Asiniibwaan (which means "stone Sioux,") from which the name Assiniboine was derived. The phrase Stone Sioux was primarily used in historical texts, and is no longer in common use.
