This dance is enacted every year during the season of their busk [sic] or green corn dances, and the men, and women and children all take an active part in the ceremony. They invest themselves with the scalp of the Buffalo, with the horns and tail attached, and dance about in a circle, uttering sounds in imitation of the animal they represent, with their bodies in a half bent position, supporting their weight upon their ball sticks, which represent the fore legs of the Buffalo.
