All these reliefs are more plentiful towards the mountains in central Montana. The three-pole foundation gives the projecting tops of the poles a spiral appearance while the four-pole beginning tends to group them on the sides.

The term wigwam is sometimes used to refer to a dwelling of this type. The southern Plains Indians acquired vast numbers of horses. In some cases, an individual hunter could kills as many as buffalo a day. In the late nineteenth century and early twentieth century, agents imposed the assimilation policy with increasing force.

It was through the steady economic growth that followed this explosion that the prairies region began to switch from an agriculture-based job sector to one with services included. He is also a distinguished historian of the early American fur trade, Astoria and Empire. The Hidatsa and Mandan of North Dakota cultivated maize at the northern limit of its range.

Bythe Navajo from northwestern New Mexico were raiding the Spanish colonies to steal horses.

Canadian Prairies

The Comanche were among the first to adopt a mounted nomadic lifestyle, and before long, all the Plains tribes integrated them into their daily lives.

With the arrival of the horse, some tribes, such as the Lakota and Cheyenne, gave up agriculture to become full-time, buffalo-hunting nomads. As horse culture moved northward, the Comanche were among the first to commit to a fully mounted nomadic lifestyle.

At this time, the Plains Indians hunted with spears, bows and arrows, and various forms of clubs. Together, they have created a feast of words and pictures that is to be savored and lingered over.

Bythe Apache were trading captives from other tribes to the Spanish for horses. In hot weather, when cooling breezes were wanted, the flaps were left open and the lower part of the tipi covering was rolled up, permitting the air to circulate freely.

The plains may be described in northern, intermediate, central and southern sections, in relation to certain peculiar features. Other horses escaped captivity for a feral existence and were captured by Native people. They comprise a large number of distinct tribes, states, and ethnic groups, many of which still endure as political communities.

Much of the natural grass cover, however, has been removed to create agricultural land or is heavily overgrazed, allowing for an increase in less-palatable species such as the cactus. Before horses were introduced, hunting was far more difficult. The earth was believed to be the mother of all spirits and the sun also had great power because it gave the earth light and warmth.On this public site, books and documents are presented only as previews.
