Crow Indians counted coups to demonstrate their bravery in combat. Killing an enemy isn't brave; but, striking an enemy with a coups-stick and living through the event, showed courage. Counting coups was one of four things a warrior had to do to becaome a chief: count coups, take a horse from an enemy, lead a successful raid, and take a weapon from an enemy. The warrior that had done the most of the four qualifiers was head chief. ~ Awe'

American Indians counted coup in combat. Touching the enemy with your spear or hatchet and that earned you points. Warriors had a coup stick which was decorated with feathers …and scalps.
Here's as close as anyone's gotten to finding the real Maria: http://www.801mag.org/cs/ContentServer?childpagename=801Mag%2FJRN_Content_C%2FArticleDetail&c=JRN_Content_C&p=116…5270039399&pagename=JRN%2F801Wrapper&cid=1175372067481 Beyond that, Adam Duritz has been quoted saying that Maria is not completely a real person, and that it's his girl alter-ego, basically. See the following site: http://anna-begins.com/info/?id=faq#q14 specifically question fourteen. Elisabeth was a former girlfriend. I believe (from my interpretation of the lyrics to "I Wish I Was A Girl") that Elisabeth is a former girlfriend who believed that Adam was cheating on her while he was out on tour, and it lead to the dissolution of their relationship. (Which is why he wishes he were a girl, because she would believe him if he were one of her girl-friends.) I don't know other songs she is mentioned in very well though, like Goodnight Elisabeth. However, that annabegins.com site I mentioned earlier has a section called "THE MEANINGS" which might help... I personally find Anna far more interesting... and whomever that girl in Carriage is...
Counting coupe is a term that describes a way of Native American warfare where no blood was shed, but rather hitting your opponent with a stick or such on the head was t…he way win by basically embarrassing him. May seem odd to current American culture but in its context where honor was more valuable than life it was an effective way to pose war and determine victory.

A coupe is the private cabin available in 1AC and First Class coaches of trains in Indian Railways. They are available in overnight trains and long-distance trains connect…ing metropolitan cities. 1AC coaches are AC coaches with coupes. First Class coaches are Non-AC coaches with coupes, however these First Class coaches are being phased out these days. Most of the coupes have berth capacity of 4; and at least one private coupe with 2 berth capacity. If you are trying to book private coupes (2 berth) online, note that, it cannot be confirmed until chart preparation. 2-berth coupes are allotted only to couples at the time of chart preparation. 1AC ticket prices are comparable to flight ticket charge. So they are not very popular. So, most of the trains do not have these coaches attached. Trains that have them usually share the coach space with 2AC berths. Hope this information is helpful!
Like the names of most tribes in North America, it is the result of the ignorance of white Americans and consequent misunderstanding. Crow is not the name of the tribe; they… call themselves Apsaalooka, which is made up of the elements apa (beak), isaa (big) and daaka (child, offspring) - together it signifies "children of the long-beaked bird" and it refers to a mythical ancestor bird spirit (the Crows say that it is a bird that no longer exists). Naturally, when using sign language to explain this to white visitors, the Crows could not point to a "bird that no longer exists", so they pointed to any bird with a long beak. Consequently Lewis and Clark called them "Kite Indians" and subsequent visitors called them Crows. Neither term is correct.
Counting coups is a way to show courage in a battle by going very close to the enemy and touch him without hurting.It's counted more brave to come closer and and touch an enem…y bare handed than killing him with an arrow from a tree.
Yes - They recently concluded their final US tour, called "Say Goodnight to the Bad Guys" where they explored the range of their catalog and the extensive historical rock and …roll songbook in the form of covers. I think the singer guy is doing a new band now that his ex got knocked up by the Muse guy (no more "sex w/the ex"; very depressing if your ex is Kate Hudson.) George Sluppick's Brotherhood. (no connection to the Muslim Brotherhood.)
How did you respond to the ways the crows counted coup and to how a grieving mother dropped off a joint of one of her fingers for each dead child?
Counting Crows was created in 1991.
