useless info...

Alaska- Based on an Aleut word "alaxsxaq" literally meaning

"object toward which the action of the sea is directed" or

more simply "the mainland".


Nebraska- Name based on an Oto Indian word that means

"flat water," referring to the Platte River.


Kansas- From the Sioux Indian for "south wind people"
