I think they are 'Endians' and not 'Indians'.
According to my dictionary -
Endian - : a reference to Swift's Gulliver's Travels, in which the Lilliputians were divided into two camps, those who ate their eggs by opening the ‘big’ end and those who ate them by opening the ‘little’ end.

Finally ... I think it's cleavernis = cleverness ?

Yes, goldie, you're right, they're Endians, sorry!

Cleaverness is clever. Thank you Bookbox

Thanks Bookbox. It has been a lonely task but I'm much perked up by the folks here.
