According to The Old Farmer’s Almanac the moon will be full Wednesday, April 28, 2010 at around 5:18 a.m. Las Vegas, Nevada time.
“American Indians gave names to each of the full moons to keep track of the passing year. The names are associated with the entire month until the next full moon occurs. Since a lunar month averages 29 days, the dates of the moons change from year to year. Here are titles most closely associated with calendar months” – Western Washington University.

Out West on the Southern Plains, Apache’s refer to the April moon as “Moon of the Big Leaves,” according to Western Washington University; no Apache translation is given.
Back East the Abenaki (Northeast Maine) name for the April moon is “Sogalikas” or “Sugar Maker Moon.”
*FYI – In the mid-90s, when I was traveling around the southwest in a motor home, I happened to meet the great, great-grandson of the great, great, Apache leader Geronimo He was selling stones and trinkets from a hogan in the Arizona desert. I still have his phone number, I think. BC
