The Sioux call themselves Dakota, Lakhota, or Nakoda, depending on the language they speak (it is the word for "men" rendered in the three related Siouan Proper languages). "Sioux" is still commonly used to refer to the group in general, but not by the people themselves, for it is an insult from their traditional enemies the Ojibwe, meaning "rattlesnake" or "treacherous."
