By the mid-19th century, horses were an integral part of the Native American society. Plains Indian societies were changed by their ability to move frequently, hunt buffalo herds as they roamed, and quarrel with other tribes. Wealth and power often equated with the number and quality of horses the chief and his family owned. It was common, because of their value, to obtain horses by any means possible, such as the braves here stealing “under the cover of darkness.”
