Coeur d’Alenes Dedicate Expansion

According to promotional materials, Hn'ya'(pqi'n'n (no, my cat did not just sit on my kepyboard, that's really what it's called) captures “the best of each season”, and uses “fresh local ingredients to prepare each dish from scratch.” It's “a fun atmosphere delivering comfort food with a twist”. Nearly as twisted as your tongue as you try to say Hn'ya'(pqi'n'n, then give up and just call it by its English translation, 'the gathering place”. Items listed among the Chef's Choice items on their menu include a “Butter-basted Ground Short Rib Burger”, “Idaho Potatoes and Beer-battered Fish and Chips” and “Handmade Soft Pretzels with Beer Cheese Sauce”/OrangeTV, Get Out! North Idaho. More here.

Question: Have you bothered to learn the names and pronunciations of places that use Coeur d'Alene Indian language names, like Q'emiln in Post Falls and Yap-Keehn-Um Beach at North Idaho College?
