Now on the bank of the river there was a camp of Kutenai Indians.
The Sarsi also had the very same form and we may suspect the Kutenai as well.
In addition, note that the Kutenai (also called Skalzi) are a distinct linguistic stock, known as Kitunahan.
At least, my Piegan informants asserted that the Kutenai had the sun dance from them.
Then at last they listened to the words of the Kutenai woman.
Even today the lower Kutenai are noted for their water-tight baskets of split roots.
