Plains Warriors

Did you know that for many plains warriors like the Dakota, Crow, Pawnee, Cheyenne, Arapaho and Kiowa took coup sticks with them into battle? "Coup" is a French word for "a hit" and rhymes with glue.  In many tribes, the highest honor that could be received was given for touching a live enemy with the bare hand or a coup stick.  Killing or scalping an enemy won less honor. It requires more courage to touch an enemy and leave him unhurt than to attack. What do you think about this?
