A domestic chicken, turkey, and goose

Ethnographic Notes

A domestic chicken, which the Lakota call “pecks quickly,” kokoyahanla; a wild turkey, wagleksun; and a Canada goose, maga sapa (Buechel, 1970: 315; 515; & 327). The Lakota had been familiar with chickens since the 1840s, when thousands of covered-wagon pioneers began crossing the Plains along the Overland Trail, on their way to Oregon, Washington and California.
