It was definitely during the reservation period, because the story involves a building in which the dance was held. The story is that a wagon pulled up to a community house with and old man and old woman in it. They got out, came into the community house and said they wanted to teach the people a dance. After they taught them, the old couple got back in their wagon and left. Down the road just a bit, they turned into rabbits. It is said that because of the steps, if you danced this way in the snow, the tracks would look like rabbits. Thatís all I know. Sounds like your dates are pretty close to when it must have come about.
