So I watch this show on A&E called Longmire about a Sherrif in Wyoming and many of the characters are Cheyenne. In the most recent episode while
questioning a man who was a part in an effort to reestablish the Dog Soldiers Longmire says to him:
"Why don't you tell me? After all you're the one who sits behind the moon."
Does anyone know what that means? This is tv so it might not necessarily be a Cheyenne term, it might be from another tribe or made up entirely.
Also a few years ago I attended a Lakota pow-wow and during an opening prayer the the guy said something along the lines of:
(I have to write it phonetically in English)
"Hi hetcha too aloh hojta hey"
Anyone got a clue about that as well?
