To the Plain Indians, the buffalo was the world. It was their food, clothing, shelter and, most of all, their
way of life. The buffalo migrations made their impact not only on
individual well-being but, when coupled with the use of horses, increased the average
life span of whole societies. Sun and Earth may have been gods, but the buffalo was king. In spring, fall
and late winter, buffalo dances became extremely important functions. Various tribes developed sub-
religions around the buffalo. “They called the buffalo to come close. They flattered, praised and
entreated the buffalo to be kind and bountiful to the people."   Fritz White.
