This historic book may have numerous typos and missing text. Purchasers can download a free scanned copy of the original book (without typos) from the publisher. Not indexed. Not illustrated. 1913 Excerpt: ...and it seemed that an encounter instead of a truce was in preparation. Amid shouting the opposing forces made ready to advance. The Chippewa were led by an oc'kabe'wls bearing the pipe, followed by four women; next came the leaders of the war party, while behind them were the warriors. The Sioux followed in similar array. As the two tribes approached each other the excitement subsided. One of the greatest scenes in the drama of Indian warfare was to be enacted. To and fro in front of the warriors walked the women. Often it was only their presence that prevented violence, the fire of battle bursting forth afresh as the warriors drew near their recent enemies. All sang as they came forward. The melody was the same in both tribes but the Chippewa sang the names of the Sioux leaders and the Sioux the names of the Chippewa leaders, each praising the valor of the other. Odjlb'we recorded the song, first as it was sung by the Chippewa, the transcription being from the first rendition which contained the name of Ga'gagins' (Little Crow), who is mentioned in connection with song No. 41. Without a pause he continued the song, introducing the names of the following Sioux leaders in the successive renditions: Ca'gobe'ns (Little Six), Bl'nlcOns', and Wa'bacdns'. He then stated that he wished to record the song as it was sung by the Sioux. The melody was the same but the following names of Chippewa leaders were introduced: Bu'gonegi'jlg (Hole-inthe-day), Wa'bejic' ("marten"), andZon'gakum'Ig ("strong earth"). No. 44.
