They use it in the US. It's for a Native American (by which I mean Native North American, American Indian), but it isn't often you hear it. Cause it's effin' rude. Comment by: Pshhhh    Rated:1/5
I've lived in Saskatchewan most of my very long life and I've never heard this one. Comment by: Katrina    Rated:2/5
Sorry, meant to give this a 1/5. It's not Canadian, it's not from the Prairies, and it's disgusting. Comment by: Katrina   
..i'm from the praries, and I've never heard this word, and hope that I never ever do. What a horrid term...please don't think this is actually used! Comment by: Jay   
From Western Canada and it's not really a term that is often used because yes, it's really rude and I've never personally used this but I have heard it used. Perhaps it's not necessarily from Saskatchewan but used by others outside the province. Comment by: Kay   
i have heard this used in winnipeg all the time, my buddy from leth uses it alot too. Comment by: someguy   
HA HA Know it, use it, love it...If you don't like it then you don't know them well enough yet Comment by: A   
Hate to tell you who deny that this is Canadian, but this is totally common and very much in use, especially when talking about people who live on reserves. Comment by: Cera    Rated:5/5
Ya know what, I think this must be a Winnipeg thing... I'm from the area and I've heard it more than a few times. Comment by: Justin   
In the US, the use the word "n**ger" only for an African American, or black person. Not a Native American, that's an Indian. Just thought I'd clear that up. And it's also extremely derogatory. Comment by: Shane    Rated:1/5
You can say pretty much anything regionally relevant followed by "n**ger". Sand "n**ger" = Arab, Ice n**ger" Eskimo, pineapple "n**ger" is a hawaiian, and then just "n**ger'... the base of word of which originated in the Southern US. Comment by: Devin   
Sorry, as a Winnipeg local, I can honestly say I've never heard this. Ever. Comment by: Mea    Rated:1/5
Very common in southern Alberta ranch country. Not used much in cities or up north (but then, that is bush country, not prairie). Comment by: John    Rated:4/5
Definitely NOT a common term in the prairies...thank goodness. What moron made this up? Comment by: Leamop
