Get this new 2020 set that honors the Kiowa Nation of the Great Plains in the popular Native American series. A largely nomadic tribe, the Kiowa migrated south from Montana through Colorado to the open central plains, where their acquisition of horses allowed them to take up bison hunting. The common reverse design features a decorated cattle skull used to scare enemies. Each obverse depicts detailed images uniquely associated with Kiowa daily life:
- 1¢ – teepee was usually made from bison hides.
- 5¢ – lizard was a protein source when other game was scarce.
- 10¢ – wolf hide was used as camouflage for bison hunting, and also symbolizes the last Principal Chief of the Kiowa, Lone Wolf.
- 25¢ – a 37-month-long calendar on animal hide recorded events, circa 1895.
- 50¢ – a Kiowa warrior attained rank according to his exploits in war.
- $1 – Chief Tene-angop’te was given his name “Kicking Bird” for the way he fought, yet later became known as an advocate for peace.
