The Kiowa Tribe

Location, Food and how they obtained their food
Shelter, Tools/Weapons, and Special Traditions
The teepee was what the Kiowa tribe lived in because being nomads, it was easier to get from one place to another. They moved a lot to follow the buffalo herds for hunting. A tool the Kiowa used was a digging stick to soften the ground and get roots to eat. They also traded a lot to get their more supplies and weapons. The Kiowa performed the sun dance and other hunting ceremonies that were held. In 1873 the quaker mission efforts began along with the Methodists and Baptists and government stopped their traditions.
Leadership, and Where the Kiowa are now
The Kiowa had many great Chiefs to lead their tribe. They had laws, a government, policies and their band was always led by a Chief.
The Kiowa tribe was forced to move Oklahoma reservations in the 1800's and most Kiowas now live in OK.
