General note

Consists of a small notebook from the Peigan Indian Agency, featuring pictographs on each page. The volume is probably a winter count, or a First Nations calendar recording significant annual events for the tribe. Pages 47-49 are a compilation of all the symbols in the notebook. Page 33 may represent the hanging of Charcoal (March 16,1897). The pictograph on page 28 at the right is a white man (wearing a hat). Double symbols such as those on pages 9 and 22 represent a sun dance, and the name of the person who sponsored it.
