Who were the Indians of the Old West? Everyone knows them - the hawk-faced men with braided hair and war feathers, their copper skin stretched over high cheekbones, their expressions penetrating and fearless. The tribal names are familiar too:MoreWho were the Indians of the Old West? Everyone knows them - the hawk-faced men with braided hair and war feathers, their copper skin stretched over high cheekbones, their expressions penetrating and fearless. The tribal names are familiar too: Comanche, Cheyenne, Sioux, Kiowa, and others - all resonant of fierce valour, calling up images of painted horsemen with lances and bows. These tribes and their warriors dwelt on the Great Plains. To most whites they represented the model of all Eastern Indians the men trained from birth to hunt and fight, measuring manhood by their boldness in battle- the women raised to sustain the warriors, sharing in celebrations of victory or slashing their bodies in moments of grief.
