"On 25 December 1833, seventeen women of the Pthin-tack-ochata, the White Buffalo Cow Society, came from the village of Mih-Tutta-Hang-Kusch to dance at Fort Clark. Membership in the society was generally elderly, it was the last of the four successive age groups joined by Mandan women as they grew older. Maximilian saw this ceremonial dance performed again on 29 January 1834 by the Pthin-tack-ochata of another Mandan village, Ruhptare" - From Karl Bodmer's North American Prints, p. 310.
