Bury My Heart at Wounded Knee- Chapter 11: The War to Save the Buffalo
Attack on Texas
Due to the substantial loss of Buffalo on the plains and loss of valuable land of the Kiowas and Comanches due to the whites, an attack fueled by rage occurred in Texas.
On May 18 1871, The Kiowas and Comanches attack a wagon train carrying supplies to places in Texas. This event becomes known as the "Salt Creek Massacre".
7 teamsters are killed during the raid.
Satanta takes responsibility for the raid; him and the other chiefs are arrested after General Sherman detains them on the spot.
Big Tree and Satanta are sentenced to life in prison.
Satank (Sitting Bear) tries to chew the flesh off his hands in order to escape from the handcuffs, and sadly dies while attempting to escape upon his trial in Fort Richardson.
In 1868 after the battle of Washita, the Cheyennes, Arapahos, Kiowas, and Comanches were ordered by General Sheridan to surrender and go to Fort Cobb or the Bluecoat soldiers would fire upon them.
Kiowas resisted
Custer arrests Satanta and Lone Wolf and others
By the time they all arrive, the only two prisoners who did not escape are Santana and Lone Wolf
This angers Custer orders them to be hanged unless all the Kiowas report to Fort Cobb
In order for the soldiers to keep close watch on the Kiowas and Comanches, they hastily build a fort near the Red River called "Fort Sill."
Lone Wolf and Satanta were aloud to go as long as they promised to settle on the reservation, thus taking away their liberty.
The forced movement and loss of buffalo of the kiowa and Comanche people led them to plan an attack against Sheridan and his soldiers.

The People & Their Land
"A long time ago this land belonged to our fathers; but when I go up to the river I see camps of soldiers on its banks." "These soldiers cut down my timber; they kill my buffalo; and when I see that, my heart feels like bursting; I feel sorry...." "Has the white man become a child that he should recklessly kill and not eat?" "When the red men slay game, they do so that they may live and not starve." -Kiowa Chief Satanta
Officer Custer
General Sheridan
The name Kiowa means "Principle People" The Kiowa Indians are original people of Colorado, New Mexico, Oklahoma, and Texas. The Kiowa people were very brazen and very protective of their land and families. On many days, tribes of Kiowa people would get together and play music and perform traditional dances. During the 1800's, the Kiowa tribe was forced to move to a reservation in Oklahoma and most Kiowa people are still living in Oklahoma today. In the Kiowa language, a simple greeting such as "Hello" would be translated to: "Hacho". Also, the word "Yes" would translate to: "Haw" in Kiowa. The Kiowa were lead by multiple chiefs including:
