Question: How did the special names that we give some of the Moons, such as the Hunter’s Moon, begin?

Answer: Historically, the Native Americans of the northern and eastern United States kept track of the seasons by giving a distinctive name to each full Moon. With some variation, the same names were used throughout the Algonquin tribes from New England to Lake Superior. These remain the full Moon names we use today.
