Buffalo Hunt on Goodnight Ranch in 1916

Charles Goodnight leads the way on foot and mounted Kiowa follow behind him as they prepare to recreate a buffalo hunt on the Goodnight Ranch in 1916. This momentary show of what was once the common life of the plains was staged by Col. Charles Goodnight, owner of the ranch and widely known as a stockman. He planned to reproduce a buffalo hunt as nearly as possible like those before the white manís rule of the plains began. One of his requirements was that the animal should be shot with bow and arrow. And there the colonel met trouble. He discovered that few of the Indians of the day could handle a bow. Finally, he found four among the Kiowas who were familiar with the old-time Indian weapons. (Washington Post 10 22, 1916)
