    Giving the Child a Name

    This ceremony, formerly practiced among the Omaha and cognate tribes, took place in the spring, “when the grass was up and the birds were singing.” A tent was set apart and made sacred by the priest who had the hereditary right to perform the ceremony. As the occasion was one of tribal interest, many people flocked to the scene of the rite.
