A dance called the Brush Dance commemorates these gatherings. Both of the Dances were very important to the Kiowas. ...more on Wikipedia about "Kiowa music"

Set Dai De was a Kiowa chief during the American Civil War. He used armed resistance against the American government, which was trying to force his people onto a reservation. He was brought before a general to answer for his actions. He took full responsibility and was sent to Texas for trial. He was kept in prison there for two years until his people bartered his release by giving up their horses and guns. Buffalo hunters were ordered to kill as many buffalo as they could, for the buffalo were the life-blood of the Kiowa. Many in the US government thought that eliminating the buffalo did more for the Kiowa "problem" than the whole US military. After the buffalo were decimated, the Kiowa were forced back onto a reservation and forced to rely upon government supply. ...more on Wikipedia about "Set Dai De"
