The Plains Indians
By Jennifer Kenny
  

1     The grasslands in our country are part of the Plains area. Two hundred years ago there were 150,000 people and 60 million buffalo in this area!
 
2     A few of the Native Americans stayed near the rivers and farmed. They lived in earth lodges.
 
3     Most of the Indians, though, were nomads. That meant they were people who moved around a lot. They used two poles covered with rawhide and called it a travois. The travois carried all their things.
