Tlingit people

"The Tlingit (/ˈklɪŋkɪt/ or /ˈtlɪŋɡɪt/; also spelled Tlinkit; Russian: Тлинкиты) are indigenous peoples of the Pacific Northwest Coast of North America. Their language is the Tlingit language (natively Lingít, pronounced [ɬɪnkɪ́t]), in which the name means "People of the Tides". The Russian name Koloshi (Колоши, from a Sugpiaq-Alutiiq term kulut´ruaq for the labret worn by women) or the related German name Koulischen may be encountered referring to the people in older historical literature, such as Shelikhov´s 1796 map of Russian America." - (en.wikipedia.org 29.01.2020)
