Notes: Some crafty people may know this word — I didn’t

Background / Comments

The word comes from the Indian (that is, Native American) Eastern Abenaki word sakama.

First usage

This word showed up in the early 1600s

Rejected word

I don’t know how well-known it is, but the word recuse was rejected because I happen to know it… do any of you?
