Speidi -- We've Given Ourselves Indian Names ...

3/31/2010 8:00 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

Heidi Montag has altered her identity yet again -- sans plastic surgery this time -- after she and Spencer Pratt decided to give themselves "true native-American names" in an effort to become more spiritual.

Heidi Montag and Spencer Pratt
So ... goodbye Heidi and Spencer ... hello White Wolf and Running Bear, respectively.

A rep for the couple tell us Spencer decided to give up his previous moniker, King Spencer, because it was "too much of a burden to have to carry the weight of royalty. "

Instead, Running Bear claims, he and Heidi "are getting more in-tune with our spirituality ... and will be known as the name our creator has given us – our true native-AMERICAN names."

These two idiots are famous for????. Idiots seems to be an accurate word. Media whores. Get lost Speidi. You disgrace yourselves by PRETENDING to be Native Americans. You are no more like Native Americans than the Easter Bunny. They are no talent fakes and just plain goofy.

What the hell is wrong with these two? Truth......are they even human or from another plant. I have never see two more attention hungry celebs in my life, they are the kind of people that make the average person lose all kinds of respective for famous people and people in general. I'm sure there are some really good shrinks in Hollywood who would love to get a hold of these two!

I didn't think traditional native americans believed in god which is what heidi keeps running off at the mouth about. they can try to be spiritual all they want, but confusing who they believe as god with being spiritual with a type of beliefs that can be considered pagan (to some) is ridiculous. and if anything, they both look like aryan breeding program rejects to me.

I give them no more than 30 minutes to survive on the Rez...the Badlands are a big place, so easy to get lost in..and as someone else said, you don't give yourself a name, it is earned.

Someone who remembers    

Giving yourself Indian names is about as "unspiritual" as you can get. Naming has always had special meaning in Indian communities and are given in ceremonies, by an Elder or a family member depending upon what tribe your from. And unless you can say your name in your native tribal tongue, the Creator will not know who you are. Even if they learn how to say it, it won't matter anyway because they are not Indian. All they are doing is exploiting Native people for attention.

If they want meaningless Indian names, I'll be happy to give them one: White Plastic Dumb Chick and Dances With Brain Damage.

There ya go: Legitimate Indian names from an Indian. :)

Wow... How disrespectful can a white person be... You took the land, murdered hundreds of thousands, and now your going to disrespect who they are as a people. Everyday Native Americans nationwide deal with racism and today we see it here!! Unfortunately, the white race, which has obviously put themselves on a pedestal as the higher race needs to look at what they've become; they have no center in life, no future to look forward too after this life and all the white race seek are material things. There is more to life then looking in tunnel vision and ignoring the world around you. UGH so annoyed... Well may the best "Karma" go to "White Wolf and Running Bear". Congrats you spotlight seeking losers! hahaha

Ok, I'm a Native American, half-blooded, but I don't go around calling myself some made up name. If these two want to be more spiritual, then they should chance their names back to the 'white' names that have are know for. The natives of this nation will see them as two wannabes who just want attention from both friends and the world. So they will never be call 'White Wolf' and 'Running Bear' from others, they will be know as two WANNABES!!!!

HEIDI & SPENCER YOU BETTER MAKE SURE YOU STAY AWAY FROM OUR NATIVE AMERICAN POW WOWS, SPIRITUAL HEALING CEREMONIES, AND ANY OTHER TYPE OF TRADITIONAL HEALING CEREMONIES!

WE ARE PROUD OF WHO WE ARE AND WHERE WE COME FROM; CARRYING ON OUR TRADITIONS IS HANDED DOWN FROM GENERATION TO GENERATION.
