A shibboleth (/ˈʃɪbəˌlɛθ, əlθ/[1][2]) (About this sound listen ) originally represented a word or custom whose variations were used to differentiate members of ingroups from those of outgroups, with each receiving value judgments of superior or inferior. Over time the word has also evolved to signify an old belief or saying that is repetitively cited but untrue. As an illustration of this usage the Concise Oxford Dictionary cites “[We] must abandon outdated shibboleths”.   (SOURCE)

 

Elvis’ great-great-great-grandmother, Morning White Dove (1800-1835), was a full-blooded Cherokee Indian. She married William Mansell, a settler in western Tennessee, in 1818. William’s father, Richard Mansell, had been a soldier in the Revolutionary War. Mansell is a French name–its literal translation is the man from Le Mans. The Mansells migrated from Norman France to Scotland, and then later to Ireland. In the 18th century the family came to the American Colonies. The appellation ‘white’ in Morning Dove’s name refers to her status as a friendly Indian. Early American settlers called peaceable Indians ‘white’, while ‘red’ was the designation for warring Indians or those who sided with the British in the Revolutionary War. (SOURCE)
