Horseshoe Park
Arapaho Ciitoowuu'
Analysis Ciit-oow-uu'

 

inside-dwelling-at (inside the tepee or dwelling)
Translation In Lodge

Notes:jThis site is an enclosed park, home to large quantities of game. The region contains many such parks, or open areas, through which the buffalo used to range. Sometimes these little enclosed parks would be literally covered with buffalo, so that the whole valley was dark with them. The Arapaho called them "game bags." The present name may come from the horseshoe-shaped bends in the river or from the shape of the valley itself.gsdfhgfsdghi}
