...“raccoon” was adopted into English from the native Powhatan term, (Virginia Colony). It was recorded on Captain John Smith’s list of Powhatan words as aroughcun, and others.
It has also been identified as a Proto-Algonquian root *ahrah-koon-em, meaning “[the] one who rubs, scrubs and scratches with its hands”.
Similarly, Spanish colonists adopted the Spanish word mapache from the Nahuatl mapachitli of the Aztecs, meaning “[the] one who takes everything in its hands”
