The very last answer took me forever to get. Shoshone, Snohomish, Seneca, Spokane, Shawnee, and Southern Paiute all came to mind before the right one.

If you take Bell for AT&T (as I agree you should), shouldn't you also take Esso for Standard Oil? Also, cut us some slack on spelling for Sacagawea. Please.

+1 on Esso working. That's all I could think of. Doh!

I thought Esso was the Canadian, not American version. And, don't they both fall under the umbrella of Shell Nederland?

I thought Esso was just a spelling variant of Exxon?

level 70

Esso was the name on the gas stations. Esso = S.O. (Standard Oil). After the breakup, Esso became Exxon, Mobil, Chevron, and Amoco (all of which maintained the red, white and/or blue colors of Esso in their logos).

Esso only became Exxon in the US in the rest of the world it remained Esso, since there were no legal issues about the name there. And only in 1973 I believe, so not at the start of the break up, which was 1911. I stand corrected if I made an error.

"Sioux" is not a tribe. It is an anglicised referent to a group of similarly cultured tribes, the Lakota, the Dakota and the Nakota. So either the clue should reference ethnic or cultural groups, or use the next biggest actual tribe, which is probably the Shoshone based on the fact that they are the majority population of Wind River reservation, the 5th most populous reservation in the US. I worked on this reservation for the summer in 2000. Simultaneously the most beautiful and terrible place I've ever been. https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Sioux | https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/List_of_largest_Indian_reservations_in_the_United_States | https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Wind_River_Indian_Reservation

You've obviously seen the correct spelling by now. Is it still too hard to get it even after you've seen the correct spelling?
