    The native North Americans always considered turkeys to be "food for the feeble-minded & feeble-bodied" (desperate starving handicapped people) and largely left turkeys alone! In come the European immigrants (explorers & settlers) with their extremely limited agriculture & hunting skills making turkeys the most popular wild food-bird mainly because turkeys generally don't run away making them very easy to catch and kill. The Turkey was so popular in the United States, it almost became their national bird very narrowly losing out to the Bald Eagle...

    The Europeans called this bird a "Turkey" because they misidentified it as a bird coming from Turkey. The Turks aren't very happy with that label, thus in the Republic of Turkey they call it a "Hindi" which means bird from India. In the Indian language of Hindi they call it a "Peru". Not sure what the Peruvians call it, but in the Indian language of Bengali (Bengal & Bangladesh) it's known as a "Paki"...
