Buffalo Rugs and Skulls

Tatanka, The Buffalo

Buffalo Rug Buffalo Rug
With the arrival of horse, the buffalo became the main source of food for many Plains Indian tribes. Large-scale hunts using bows, arrows, and lances were common. The bison became a way of life. Tribes like the Sioux, Blackfoot, Cree, Ojibway, Crow, and Arapaho got everything from the buffalo; their food, their tipis, as well as their clothing, tools and weapons. Nothing was waisted, horns were carved into spoons, hides transformed into robes, sinew was used for sewing, fletching arrows and making bow strings, hoofs were boiled into glue, and teeth were used to make necklaces and adorn clothing.
