French fur traders allegedly named the local Indian tribe the Coeur d’Alene out of respect for their tough trading practices. Translated from French Cœur d’Alène or Alêne literally means “heart of the awl” which might mean “sharp-hearted” or “shrewd”.
The city is named after the Coeur d’Alene People, a tribe of Native Americans who lived along the rivers and lakes of the region and were first encountered by French fur traders in the late 18th and early 19th century. The name Cœur d’Alène translated into English means Heart of an Awl, a reflection of the perception of the tribe’s traders as very tough businessmen
