Preface: Very little has been recorded about the Sarcee Indians of Alberta apart from the accounts of their Dancing Societies and Sun Dance publications by Dr. P.E. Goddard in the series of Anthropological Papers of the American Museum of Natural History. In the summer of 1921, the National Museum of Canada sent Mr. Jenness to their reserve near Calgary to discover what he could concerning their earlier customs and beliefs. The field-notes he gathered on that occasion provide the material for this report.
