Table of Contents

In this volume, for the first time in one source, is the historical documentation showing approximately when and from where the first horses reached more than 125 tribes. Elegant, full- color maps, show this parade across the continent. The introduction of the horse changed Indian culture, and caused a revolution in lifestyle.

American Indian tribes bridled their horses in unique and beautiful ways. Their fancy beaded, quilled and cloth bridles are featured in more than 600 color photographs, paintings and historic images. Of materials taken from the depths of the sea and the bowels of the earth; from birds of the sky; plants, trees and creatures of the land; from the scalps and bodies of defeated enemies and the manes and tails of the steeds themselves, Native artisans designed myriad ways to transform the appearance of their beloved horses. Jingling with bells, wrapped in rainbows, reined and stitched with lightning, for five centuries the bridles of American Indian riders have been paraded with pride.

Special chapters on tribal horse culture have been contributed by Nakia Williamson Cloud, Nez Perce historian, and Paul Raczka, long associated with the Blackfoot.
