  1. “Chieftain,” as a word predates contact with North Americans. First use is in the fourteenth century, but the roots go back to Roman Latin and even Proto Indo-European. Pre-feudal Europe was full of chieftains, as was 19th century Scotland. Maybe someone finally checked in with the english or history teachers. Switch out the Native American for a Viking or a Highlander and you’re good to go, Wokies.
