    Hunting buffalo was an important part of our lives. We killed only as many as we needed, and afterward, we divided the animals evenly among one another. Very little of the animal was left behind. Buffalo skins were used for tipis, also as blankets. From them we also made robes and moccasins, shields, snowshoes, and carrying bags called parfleches. The Plains Indians got their name because they lived among the Great Plains of the United States. This vast expansion of land extended all the way from Mississippi to the mountains of Canada. In order to survive, the Plains Indians hunted buffalo as their main source of food.
