ABC News' Sunlen Miller Reports: Traveling though Montana on Monday, Sen. Barack Obama, D-Ill., made his first stop as a presidential candidate to an Indian reservation - and got a little more than expected.
Obama was adopted as an honorary member into the family within the Crow tribe that inhabited the reservation - who gave the presidential candidate a new name and new parents.
"Awe Kooda bilaxpak Kuuxshish" was the honorary name given to Obama meaning, "one who helps people throughout the land."
Obama was escorted out to the stage in Crow Agency, Montana arm-in-arm between his adopted parents: Sunny and Mary Black Eagle.
Obama thanked his honorary new parents for giving him another name to tack on to the list, "I like my new name Barack Black Eagle. I mean that's a good name."

I thought the Apsaroke Nation would have more sense than to associate with a grifter like this . . .
I always thought that Native Americans were good judges of character.This kinda blows holes in that theory.
The Apsaroke were happy to exploit the U.S. Army in order to get back at their longtime enemies the Lakota. Upside was, they got to keep their ancestral lands in large part.
Perhaps Obama is the one being exploited here . . . .
Truly "A Man For All Seasons".
What a pantload of this "country's best and brightest" running for POTUS. See tagline. Hasn't changed in "many moons", to put it in Indian speak.
I think Walking Eagle is more fitting.
Too full of crap to fly.
Well, there’s one Indian Casino that won’t get any of my business. Just saved myself 20 bucks...
Who’s he flipping off?
Same attitude and anger; but she's definitely had some "gonna' be campaigning" work done.
I never would have known that the woman in the first picture was the one we're being shown. She may have taken a page from hillary's campaigning book.
“Call for Jeremiah Johnson! Call for Jeremiah Johnson!”
That would have been more appropriate.
Cool. It’s about time we played cowboy and presidential candidate.
It means: "he who loveths animals and is in turned loved by them, too!"
He should be called Barack Stonefeather, he reminds me of what someone said about a coworker once. “If you gave him a rock and a feather he would find some way to use that feather to ruin the rock”.
