Orting..where Mt Rainier (Tahoma) goes to take a dump


Just as a point of correction, Mt Rainier has never been referred to as "Tahoma" by any native tribe. "Tahoma" is an amalgamation of three towns in the area, specifically Talbot, Hobart, and Maple Valley, and was created by school children when they created the school district in the area.

That the mountain was called "Tahoma" is probably the single largest urban legend in history.

I don't know where you got that bit of drivel from, but I hope you aren't (More importantly, the school isn't) teaching your kids that.

That is exactly the kind of urban myth I'm talking about. It's all over wikipedia, too.

But you can go right to the source.

Link

The name Tahoma was created by students in 1926 to name the newly built junior-senior high school that served three independent school districts: Taylor, Hobart and Maple Valley. The name is derived from the first two letters of each of those names.

It has *never* been the name of the mountain. "Tacoma" might have been, but "Tahoma" has never been.

Nice...these are the ones educating your kids. That website is saying the students chose that name for the school district [with the semi-lie/attempted urban legend that its from local town names (wohelo)]. The mountain, on the other hand, has been 'Tahoma' forever, only taking the 'nom de plume', Rainier when Vancouver showed up. Your Tacoma Tribune has an article for yoou, stating it was argued in Washington, DC in 1890.

Wait, so your argument is that a newspaper article stating "How Mt. TACOMA became Mt. Rainier" is your defense about the etymology of "Tahoma?" Are you retarded?

Tahoma's creation is a matter of public farking record. It was 1923. You can head on down to Maple Valley City Hall and view it yourself. Or you can talk to the Cedar River Historical Society. They wrote a farking book on the thing.

It's actually pretty nice there. Pretty large compound which the residents can wander around at their leisure, a fair amount of old decommissioned military stuff... My grandfather lost his ability to speak (except ironically for the German word for "shiat", something he had to have picked up in WWII) to a stroke when I was a kid, but he seemed to like it there quite a bit.

OK, One last time, Washington Historical Society How big a reference do you require? Those guys are sellin' ya a pig in a poke.

I can't believe Maple Valley is trying to rewrite history, and I can't believe Tahoma schools is in on the act. I'd question the truthfulness of the education your kids are getting.

FYL: "Indians west and east of the Cascade range had given the mountain different names, but the most common one was Tahoma, or White Mountain - a Yakima word."

But some claim it's a Puyallup tribe word, Tahoma means "that frozen water." Some even say generically that it's Salish.

But it looks like that isn't true. Link
"In a Salish dictionary the word for the peak of a mountain is chtgoichan; liquid frozen hard is es-nimap; a snowy place is mkotolegu; mountain is es-moko. Clearly none of these has any connection with Tahoma."

The Puyallup Tribe themselves say it's "Tacobet" - but depending on which tribe's dialect, it was Tacoma, Tahoma or Tacobet.

The whole Chinook Nation had variants on "Tahoma", with Tahoma, Tacobet, Tacoma, Tahomeh, and many more. Plus the Yakima, Nez Perce, and Palouse tribes had their name similiar to that. Sayin' Tahoma isn't the name of Rainier is sayin' Maple valley is the center of the universe when everyone knows it's Fremont.

Bull. Tahoma, like Tacoma and even Dakobeh, are European-American attempt to pronounce the native Luksosheed (sp?) name for the mountain, which name/pronunciation varied not only from tribe to tribe but even person to person as the language was spoken only, with no real standardisation. Your high school kids took a common name for the mountain and cleverly made an acronym out of it, is all.
