                  PRAYERS OF THE WAR CULT


                  Before going on tbe warpath the bow priests are summoned to their
                  ceremonial house. The chief bow priest addresses them:

                  Now this many days

                  Because of the thoughts of the enemy
                  Our thoughts have been troubled;
                  5 Our appetite has failed.

                  This very day

                  That by whieh they live,


                  To my fathers I have offered

                  At ail their abiding places.

                  11 Yonder into the enemy's country
                  We shall take the warpath.

                  Because of the enemy,

                  Because of their thoughts,

                  15 We wish in vain see one another,5
                  We can not see him of whom we

                  Because it is thus,

                  To be avenged

                  We have made up our minds.

                  20 My children,

                  You shall set your minds to be men.
                  You shall think to provide your-
                  selves with good weapons.

                  Then, perhaps, we shall have the
                  good fortune,

                  To get that which we wish,

                  25 That for which we ask-

                  Namely that with the enemies'

                  Their clothing,

                  Their precious stones,

                  Their good shell beads,

                  30 That with these our houses may
                  obtain hearts,

                  For this we have sent forth our

                  Waiting anxiously until the ap-
                  pointed time shall come,

                  Cleansing our hearts,

                  Cleansing our thoughts,

                  35 Thus shall we live.

                  Indeed we shall not be alone.

                  Because yonder ail about

                  Abide our fathers.

                  < Turqaoise, above ail else, the gift to the gods of war.
                  s Some of our number have died.
