"Imagine the spectacle of moving camp on the Great Plains. About two hundred fifty men on their best horses, riding in full dress.
Boys held imaginary battles, shooting their arrows under galloping pony necks. Deep-voiced chants, war whoops, and the incessant brawling of excited dogs fills the air. And behind all this, the village is strung out for over a mile.
Dust rises from the scraping travois and the vast horse herd. Old men and women ride the travois atop the pile tipis and so do young children. The ladies who have to manage all this prevail with good-natured dignity."
