Ry sorry to call you out bro but I must.

Win -gan-a-coa means you are wearing nice clothes. Win-ga-po which is in the Disney movie does mean greetings.

Algonquian is a language family made up of 27 different dialects. The most widely spoken of these come from further west because most of the easter tribes/nations are of smaller numbers today for obvious reasons.
Ah-na does mean sunset or good night but it does not mean good bye. The Powhatan, which means priest or spiritual leader, did speak one of those 27 dialects but it was/is very different from say the Algonquian of the Great Lakes Area or even of that in North Carolina.

Here are some Cro-at-o-an words from Hatteras Island

Wassador --- medal
Uppowoc --- tobacco, or to smoke
Chingwusso --- channel bass
Tesicqueo --- king snake
Crenepos --- women
Manteo --- to snatch
Wanchese --- to take flight off of water
Roanoke --- oyster money
Ocracoke --- clam money
Dasamonquepeu --- peninsula
Pamlico --- shallow water
Win-gan-a-coa --- you are wearing nice clothes
Ka ka torawirocs yowo --- How is this called?
Raccoon --- to scratch
Opossum --- to carry in a pouch
Winauk --- sassafras
Pagatowr --- corn
Oonossa --- pine tree
Umpe --- water
Wiroans --- leader, chief
Machicomuck --- temple
Kew’as --- God
Kew’asowock --- Gods
Popogusso --- Hell
Okindgier --- beans
Wickonzowr --- peas

Thanksgiving by the way was a time of fasting and the first English Thanksgiving in the New World was July 4th 1584 at Croatoan by Captains Arthur Barlowe and Phillip Amadas.

I know what it means dude. I was saying what people thought it meant. Like they just started saying the wrong thing so long it made a new meaning. Like the word Kangaroo is an animal in Australia but its actually means "What are you talking about?" however when asked what a Kangaroo was a Native interpreter said "what the hell are you talking about as in how can you not know what that is they are everywhere." and the Brits just said ah it is a Kangaroo. Disney did say po not coa but if you change it to coa is does mean clothes. And that is what people had said forever, I think dinsey changed it in the animated movie version after talking to the Natives who were consulted for the film. Or so I am pretty sure because 3 of them they came to one of my anthropology classes in college and were explaining the story.

Coa, Po, poa, whatever my brain is fried from Japanese anyway and I am already forgetting our mother's tongue. By the way we are having a international Thanksgiving here in Japan and I will explain to them what went down. A lot of Jpanese peole have never had Turkey before. Also we have 6 people from New Zealand coming and it is their first Thanksgiving.

yeah yeah blame it on Japan. You need to come back to the Island.

I did not know that about kangaroo. The English did the same thing here but I already went over it in the hidden history section "native names" I think.

Anyway congrats on getting engaged!

Where it says ( Out-of-State Adoptions )

from the wikitalk page

"The blurb about Ric Flair does not make sense as written. "June Allyson and husband Dick Powell also used the Memphis-based home for adopting a child, as did Ric Flair."
Flair was born in 1949 - there is no way he used Georgia Tann's services (presumably 20+ yrs later??) to adopt a child. Is the statement meant to say he's one of the children adopted by means of Georgia T's nefarious methods?...."
