It’s an Indian legend… I think.
Or maybe Hollywood made it up. They talk about it in Legends of the Fall about an Indian friend they considered a great warrior.
Anyway Roy told me, it’s when a brave sneaks upon his enemy in total silence to prove he can catch him at anytime. It’s a great thing to catch coo. And spooks the Hell out of your enemies!
Imagine being an Indian brave and holdin’ a knife to the throat of your enemy only to smile and walk away.
Furthermore, imagine wakin’ up to a knife to your throat by your enemy!! That would freak my shit out!!
I suppose I could Google it.
But where’s the fun in that… and if I’m wrong. My story I’m about to tell you just will not have the same impact.
