Roughly half of U.S. states have names that are definitely, or possibly, of Native American origin.... 8 of America's 50 largest cities have names that are definitely of Native American origin....

Language: There are hundreds of English-language words that are of native origin....
...
Food: ...
Military Service:...
Leisure: ...
Popular Culture:...
Environmentalism: ...

Government: Before the fellows who wrote the Constitution got together, they made a point of studying other governments for pointers. One of those that they studied, per Benjamin Franklin, was the Iroquoian League of Nations.

In short: Shut up, Rick.... Better to remain silent and be thought a fool than to open your mouth and remove all doubt.

Meanwhile, 8 of the Top 50 U.S. cities whose names are of Native American extraction are Chicago (3), Seattle (18), Milwaukee (31), Tucson (33), Miami (42), Tulsa (47), Tampa (48), and Wichita (50).

I got Chicago, Miami, Tampa, Tulsa, and Wichita...and a few that aren't among the top 50 (Savannah, Mobile, Cheyenne, Spokane). I also guessed Atlanta, which is wrong. I feel dumb that Seattle, Milwaukee, and Tucson didn't come to mind.
