Winter has always been a brutal season on the plains of North Dakota. Skin Lodges provided little protection from the icy winds that blew down from the north. But the Mandans stayed warm in their comfortable homes of earth and wood. By 1750, the Mandans had acquired horses and buffalo hunting took on a great significances in their lives. Now they could lay up ample stores of meat to supplement the vegetables they grew and the heavy buffalo robes kept them warm in the blizzards.
Mandans attached special importantance to their horses. During winter days, the horses were loose-herded in the shelter of nearby cottonwood groves. At sundown, the prized buffalo horses were brought into lodges for warmth and security. - TL

ABOUT EMAILING FOR PRICE:
1. Once an item is "sold out" and only available thru "secondary" or "resale" sources, pricing can vary day by day or hour by hour as resales occur. In such instances, the prices you see on our website may represent the last of those items sold as opposed to today's price. That is why we often tell you to "email" for pricing. And that is why prices often change without notice.
2. We apologize that there are some artists who do not allow on-line listings of their prices.
In either event, when you email for pricing, you must include your phone number and location. We'll get back to you quickly.
If you are having difficulty using our "email for price" or "bid" forms, please call us or switch to another internet browser (Chrome, Edge, Firefox, etc.)
