The Crow Or Absaroka





As this tribe belongs to the Hidatsa linguistic substock, it is very

probable that the social laws and customs of the one people are identical

with those of the other, as there has been nothing to cause extensive

differentiation.



It is not known whether the Hidatsa and Crow tribes ever camped in a

circle. Morgan's list of the Crow gentes is given, with his peculiar

notation, as follows:



1. Prairie Dog gens, A-che-pae-be'-cha.



2. Bad Leggings, E-sach'-ka-buk.



3. Skunk, Ho-ka-rut'-cha.



4. Treacherous Lodges, Ash-bot-chee-ah.



5. Lost Lodges, Ah-shin'-nae de'-ah (possibly intended for Last Lodges,

those who camped in the rear).



6. Bad Honors, Ese-kep-kae'-buk.



7. Butchers. Oo-sae-bot'-see.



8. Moving Lodges, Ah-hae-chick.



9. Bear-paw Mountain, Ship-tet'-zae.



10. Blackfoot Lodges, Ash-kane'-na.



11. Fish Catchers, Boo-a-da'-sha.



12. Antelope, O-hot-du-sha.



13. Raven, Pet-chale-ruh-pae'-ka.
