The turkey waa Introduced Into

France. So far aa can be learned,
the first turkey ever *een In that

most unknown American wilderness.
for the delectation of the guests at
the wedding feast of King Charles IX

Important weapon of war and of the

utility to the tribespeople. being at

to give them buoyancy, and to caus?

The Cheyennes. whose huntlnj

the neighboring tribes by a name tha

loned to encircle the crown of tl

In the ceremonial dances, stran
and grotesque masks are worn by t
participants, some of whom persona

these masks are elaborately deoorat
with feathers of turkeys, eagles, ow
