How did the horse affect Native Americans?

Ultimately the horse improved native American culture without fully removing any major bits.The Indians (native Americans) could hunt buffalo (Bison) faster and more efficiently and could get more carcasses back to their camps than before. this allowed for a growth in Indian bands, but that was restricted by elders trying to preserve the buffalo.The horses also gave access to improved Counting Coup, (the belief that it is braver to touch an enemy than to kill them). When two opposing Indian tribal bands were facing each other, they could do this "counting coup", and instead of killing each other and drastically affecting both tribes, the Indians could simply lightly smack an enemy and by honour they would have to give up their horse. Horses became a show of honour and respect to the Indians- having lots of horses, (especially strong horses), showed that you were a truly well weathered warrior and your simple presence demanded respect.Of course, good comes with a pinch of bad. Indians went horse rustling on the settlers coming in and that got them shot. The horses brought them settler diseases via ticks and fleas, with got them ill and then shot. Indian and Settler values were different, so when they traded, sometimes one or the other got angry and then someone would be shot.Lots of people being shot, basically.
