This historic book may have numerous typos and missing text. Purchasers can usually download a free scanned copy of the original book (without typos) from the publisher. Not indexed. Not illustrated. 1922 edition. Excerpt: ...the meaning explained under No. 5; in which case the name would be: Blue Hang(s) Covered Up, and the name would then call to mind the fact, that these skins may often be seen wrapped up in a piece of cloth or buckskin to protect them from dust and smoke. Cakwainoma. (f.) Blue Walks. From cakw (the w being dropped on account of the following w); wai, root of such words as walk, go, go about, etc., and No. 10. The meaning is, that a latayo is walking.

The form lomti may be taken as an adjective, in which case the meaning would be, that pretty fox skins are folded up; or it may be taken in an adverbial sense, in which case the correct translation of the name would be as given. The construction of the name admits of both renderings. In either case the fox skins referred to are those which are gotten ready for ceremonies, and may often be seen folded up in the kivas. Lomangova. (m.)...
