View from Spotted Tail, Jr.'s tent

View from Spotted Tail, Jr.'s tent. Oct. 16.

 

Went to church, the rector, Mr. Cleveland, away. The sexton read the service - sang, Holy, Holy, Holy, the hymn for Trinity sunday. Wanka, Wanka, also, Nearer my God to Thee. The people sang in a loud chest tone, discordant and nasal.

Went to dinner at a Mr. A.G. Shaw, married to an Indian woman. There I saw the Turtle, learned of various games of women and about the Woman's Club.

Also, went to the funeral of the woman who died the day before and was a member of the Woman’s band. The blanket that was given was put over the coffin while being carried to the grave and spread so as to receive the earth. Mr. Smith read part of the service buried outside the grave yard. Grave yard near hill shape of cross.
