Great Circle

The tribes of the plains give each year a name from a list that repeats every 99 years. This is called the Great Circle.

The names of the each year can be found by combining a word from the first list with a word from the second, taking each word in turn. So, for example, after the year of the Happy Lion comes the year of the Strong Wolf.
