Description: 
In this sensitively drawn work, three Kiowa warriors solemnly ride in a dignified procession. The Kiowa had six military societies, and the exactness of dress and adornment in this drawing indicates that the men are members of the same society. They wear identical clothing and hairstyles, carry identical lances, and ride identically outfitted horses. The artist, Ohettoint, recollected this moment while he was imprisoned at Fort Marion where no war horses or Kiowa military societies existed.
