You're correct I believe about the role of the horse in warfare. The horse existed in North America until about 12, 000 years ago, then became extinct. Then the Spanish reintroduced it.

What we generally do not here about in todays native American history are the wars they fought among each other for slaves and plunder long before the arrival of Europeans and long after their arrival,a fact that was used to their (Europeans) benefit in the conflicts that followed.
probably the one thing that changed the way war was waged for Indians of the time was the horse not the gun.
Peace
