TitleDog feast : soup at Dutrois' wigwam at Crooked Creek
CreatorWinter, George, 1810-1876
Description"Dog Feast, Soup at Dutrois' wigwam at Crooked Creek" (title from verso of first page) AMs, 2 p.
Description ContinuedBegins with excerpt from "Hist. W. Socty." regarding the dog feast, among the Sioux and other Indians, as the highest compliment that can be paid to a guest. G.W. then describes an odd-tasting soup he was given at Dutrois' wigwam at Crooked Creek in August 1837, which he suspected contained dog meat. He was repelled by the taste, but knew that refusing it would be considered an insult.
