Yes, it is. If you check the top 1000 Indian surnames, Walker is definitely included. The Walker surname is usually said to be Scottish or Irish. Long before Europeans invaded America, many tribes, in their own language, included "Walker" as part of their name i.e. Firewalker; Skywalker; etc.

Also, many Native American languages use the syllables "wau" and "quah" frequently, as well as very similar sounding syllables. These syllables mean different things in different Native American languages.

My "Walker" surname is in no way related to Scottish or Irish ancestry. Each "Walker" just has to do the research, if the information is available, and figure out how their ancestors came by their surname.
