The Comanche Indians of Texas used the
buffalo in the following manner: the meat for food; the brains and
liver for softening leather; horns and skulls for ladles and
vessels; the shoulder blades for hoes, picks and knives; tendons for
bow strings; tail hair for ropes and belts; and hides for bridles,
saddles, shields, moccasins, bags, shirts, beds, robes, etc.
