Plains Indian men like the Blackfoot wore buffalo hides like this one as robes. They painted their warlike deeds onto them. The owner of this robe is shown dressed in a yellow shirt with a war-bonnet on his head. Can you find him eight times on the painting? He is capturing a woman, firing arrows from behind a wounded horse, and holding four scalps from defeated enemies.
Men gained honour from brave deeds in war, including striking or killing enemies, being wounded, capturing horses and taking scalps.
