The Plain Indians

ReligionThe worship of the Great Spirit was key to their beliefs. A dance performed called the Sun Dance was a way to show respect and love for their gods. This dance would often take place over the span of four days; much of it spent staring up at the sun. Powwows were one of the Plains Indian ceremonies. A powwow was a celebration or prayer to the Great Spirit.

FoodThe Plain Indians hunted buffalo as their main source of food. The fresh meat was either roasted on a stick over the fire or boiled, sometimes with fresh vegetables. The Indians also made a sort of sausage by stuffing meat and herbs into the buffalo's gut. No part of the buffalo went to waste, including the brain.
