Analysis Biixuut

 

shirt
Translation The Shirt

Notes:jAccording to the Toll manuscript, four or five hostile Pawnee Indians were killed on the north slope of this mountain, one of whom was wearing a shirt. This name shows a point of view different from ours, as a man wearing a shirt may seem trivial but to the Arapaho was significant. This mountain stands at an elevation of 8900'. The present name derives from the view from the top.
