What's in a name?

Many ethnic and cultural groups are known by a variety of names, some used to refer to themselves and some dused by those outside the group.  Each of these names could yield information about that group depending on the source being searched.  For example, the people who refer to themselves as the Dine are more commonly known as the Navajo.

Volume 10 of The Encyclopedia of World Cultures [REF GN307 .E53 1991]  includes an "ethnonym" index: a list of names which have been used at different times and places for the same group.
