Some of you might find this brief discussion of the relation of the Horse, Bow, and American Planes Indian interesting. (The Comanche in this case)   

Jeremiah 5:21 King James Version 
Hear now this, O foolish people, and without understanding; which have eyes, and see not; which have ears, and hear not:
2 Chronicles 7:14
14 If my people, which are called by my name, shall humble themselves, and pray, and seek my face, and turn from their wicked ways; then will I hear from heaven, and will forgive their sin, and will heal their land.

The Lakota used to have competitions on how many arrows you could have in the air at once.  Compare this to a muzzle loader rifle at the time where if you were an EXPERT you might be able to mange 2 rounds a minute.  Yet they were shooting four rounds or more a second.  This is why Ben Franklin wanted us to adopt the long bow for the Continental Army.
