 The Word Hoosier
Indiana rivermen were so spectacularly successful in trouncing or "hushing" their adversaries in the brawling that was then common that they became known as "hushers," and eventually Hoosiers.

Occasionally stories link the origin of Indiana's nickname to "Hoosier Bait" ("a kind of gingerbread," according to Dunn) or "Hoosier cake" ("a Western name for a sort of coarse gingerbread," again according to Dunn, "which, say the Kentuckians, is the best bait to catch a hoosier with, the biped being fond of it.").
