The following spring, Zebulon started the return trip from the middle of what became Minnesota to St. Louis. When he got to an area north of Dubuque he witnessed a sporting event.
While the Sioux and Meskwaki were later described as mortal enemies, both tribes participated in this contest. The Meskwaki were called Reynards by Pike, and he called the Ho-Chunk or Winnebagos, Puants.
From Couse, 1895.
