Bull Calf's Teepee
slide 5 of 10

Be hospitable. Be kind. Always assume that your guest is tired, cold, and hungry. If even a hungry dog enters your lodge, you must feed him. Always give your guest the place of honor in the lodge, and at the feast, and serve him in reasonable ways. Never sit while your guest stands. Go hungry rather than stint your guest. If he refuses certain food, say nothing; he may be under vow. Protect your guest as one of the family; feed his horse, and beat your dogs if they harm his dog. Do not trouble your guest with many questions about himself; he will tell you what he wishes you to know.

In another man’s lodge, follow his customs, not your own. Never worry your host with your troubles. Speak softly, especially before your elders or in presence of strangers.

Let each tepee be in its place, as long ago appointed by the old men—the wise ones—the nigh kin near each other, and the clans of different totems facing across the circle.
