KIOWA DUTCH ... white captive known as Boin-edal (Big Blond) by the Kiowa. Little is known about this unfortunate white captive, other than he was 8 yrs old when taken captive in 1835, the year the Kiowa Indians raided all the way to the Texas Gulf Coast. Both parents, only having arrived from Germany 3 years prior were killed. Boin-edal remained with the Kiowa all his life, unknown to the whites until a blond white man was discovered living among the tribe when placed on the Kiowa reservation.

Black Horse - about 40 years old, was no stranger to battle, having fought other Indian tribes, the U.S. Army and the white settlements. As a known troublemaker, after his surrender at Fort Sill in Oklahoma Territory, he was the only Comanche chief to be imprisoned at Ft. Marion, Florida. Returning to Oklahoma after 2 yrs, Black Horse was soon raiding again, leading the last Comanche raid in Texas in 1878.
