See-pohs-kah-nu-mah-kah-kee, People of the pheasants;(13) Prince
Maximilian says they called themselves Numangkake, Men, adding usually
the name of their village, and that another name is Mahna-Narra, The
Sulky [Ones], applied because they separated from the rest of their
nation;(14) of the latter name their common appellation seems to be a
corruption); on Fort Berthold reservation, North Dakota, comprising in

6. Hidatsa

A. Hidatsa (their own name, the meaning of which is uncertain, but
appears to refer to a traditional buffalo pannch connected with the
division of the group, though supposed by some to refer to

objectionally, Gros Ventres); on Fort Berthold reservation, North
Dakota, comprising in 1796 (according to information gained by
