Show Summary

Bull-chief was once requested by a girl’s father to name her after the hardest fight he had ever been in. Before formally conferring the name, my informant made some incense of ise root, as the Crow had been instructed to do on such occasions in ancient times. Then he raised the infant aloft, this being a symbol of his wish that she might grow up, and finally called her "Takes-the-medicine-pipe." . . . This was in commemoration of an encounter during which Bull-chief had rushed up towards the enemy and plucked away a medicine pipe that was protruding from their fortifications. . . . Bull-chief also named his own grandson. He had once struck a coup under such dangerous circumstances that no other Crow had struck after him, and accordingly he called his grandchild, "His-coups-are-dangerous."1
