THE HUNTING PARTY
In 1840 there were some 30/70 million Buffalo on the American Plains. Plains tribes depended on them for their food, clothing, and shelter. They took only what they needed and asked forgiveness for having to take it. The "Indian Wars" became more aggressive after the Civil War. One government strategy for dealing with the "Indian Problem" was to open hunting for 'sport' and Buffalo were slaughtered just for the value of their hides, leaving the rest to rot. By 1889 there were less than 1000 Buffalo. Hunting parties became fruitless, and a way of life soon ended.
