buffalo’s. the second reason was because their fierce, brave nature reminded people the way buffalos fought. the last reason is they wore thick coats made from buffalo hide during the winter time.Buffalo’s couldn’t really do anything that they wanted to because they had big jobs to do like they was often out on patrol for weeks at a time in a very depressed country.Training was harsh,and also prejudice and death was always right around the corner.
