"Planting tobacco seeds was a religious event performed by the tobacco society. After the ground was prepared, members placed branches around the garden to protect the plants. Small offerings, such as bits of ribbon and feathers, were tied to the branches. Once the seeds were planted, sticks about 18" long were inserted into the ground with small medicine bundles attached.
The Crow believed that little people lived in the ground and helped make the tobacco plants grow, so the bundles, containing berries, herbs, etc., along with tiny moccasins and other miniature articles of clothing, were given as offerings
