-Only against his enemies.

-ln the world of white men. . .

nor friends.

of earth to the other.

l have the strongest magic,

and l lead many, many warriors.

l am Buffalo Horn.

Buffalo Horn!

We cannot be enemies to the Kiowas

without being enemies to ourselves.

-Buffalo Horn should know that.

-l must see your eyes when you tell me.

-Do you come out, or do l come in?


We will talk to our brother

only in the sunlight.

y our answer is honest.

l will return again at a time

when the sun has killed the stars.

-That was him.

-The new chief?

-By himself?

-The others were over the hill.

What do you think?

He was carrying a war spear

with scalps on it.

They wouldnt do anything to us.

Maybe not.

l wouldnt be too sure.

A trader said they got a name for you:

The thin woman

who deserted her own people.
