"Dog Eaters" is an alternate name for the Arapaho tribe. It is an English translation of the names for the Arapahos in the languages
of neighboring tribes such as the Comanche (who called them Saretika, which literally means "they eat dogs.")
The Arapahos, like many Plains Indian tribes, did raise dogs as food animals, whereas it was taboo to eat dog meat in Comanche culture.
