     As you will note below, some listings include one entry per month. In these cases, usually, the name in that language may be more properly a name for the month, instead of the "moon" since there are more than 12 moons per year. Over a long enough period of time, the moons will shift through the seasons.

   There are occasional multiple names for one moon or month. This could be caused by the overlapping of some moons in a month, different groups in the tribe using different names, or from different translations of the same common name. Also, some groups within a tribe might have a name for a moon or month, while other groups within the same tribe may have no name for the same moon or month.
