How the Hawks got their name:
Originally the Hawks were the Tri-Cities Blackhawks, a team that was founded in the Midwest. Tri-Cities is located in the Midwest, in lands which once belonged to the Kickapoo, Sauk, and Fox Native American tribes. The three tribes fought a long war against the United Stated called the Blackhawk war after their chief Blackhawk.
When the Hawks moved to Milwaukee the name was shortened to just Hawks. The name Hawks was previously used by the Waterloo Hawks of the NBL and NBA but the two franchises are not related.
