Each player controls one North American Indian Tribe.  
Players use their people to gather food and to raid each other and the white men. 

The game ends after 6 Turns. 
The player with the Most Victory Points (VP) at the end of the game wins. 
If you ever lose all your PT or LT you automatically lose. 

Each player picks one of the Nations listed in the Nation List as their identity. 

These are used to conduct actions such as raiding and hunting. 
Each Population Token (PT) represents about 50 People. 

Extra Land Tokens (LT) give more access to food and resources. 

Food Tokens (FT) are used to feed your people. 
They are gained by claiming certain cards. 

Horse Tokens (HT) give advantages to Raids.  

Weapon Tokens (WT) give advantages to Raids. 
Spirit Tokens (ST) have a variety of uses. 

Trade Tokens (TT) represent things like Furs and skins or crafted items that are 
Used to trade with whites for things like Guns and Horses. 

Craft Tokens (CT) represent an accumulation of skilled labor. 

Each player should have his own Mat with spaces for: 
1. Unactivated PT 
2. Activated PT
3. PT reserved for Raiding
4. PT reserved for Trading
5. All other Tokens

Players share a common deck. 
Cards are of 2 basic types: Resource Cards and Bonus Cards. 
Resource cards provide Tokens and are then Discarded. 
Bonus Cards are placed face-up in front of the owner and 
Provide either a continuous benefit or are discarded for a one-time benefit. 

Six sided Dice are needed. 
Dice are used to resolve Raids and Events. 

Possessor of the Eagle Feather goes first in the Hunt and Raid Phases. 
Play then proceeds clockwise. 

Each player gets 10 PT and 10 LT and 10 ST. 
Players roll high on 1D6 to see who gets the Eagle Feather. 

Each turn has 9 Phases: 
1. Season Phase
2. Braves Phase
3. Hunt Phase
4. Territory Phase
5. Food Phase
6. Raid Phase
7. Trade Phase
8. Encroachment Phase
9. Spirit Phase

Place 7X cards from the top of the spirit deck face up. 
X = the number of players. 
If the deck runs out, shuffle the discard and draw from it. 

Players take turns activating Population Tokens one at a time starting with 
The Eagle Feather holder and then going clockwise. 
An activated PT can claim a face up spirit card or go on a raid or go Trading. 
Resolve Spirit card purchases and conversions as soon as they are claimed. 
Some Spirit Cards have a purchase cost in Tokens. This must be paid immediately. 
If the purchase cost cannot be paid, the card cannot be claimed. 
If the Spirit card is a resource card, immediately gain the indicated type of Tokens and then discard the card. 
Raids are resolved in Raid Phase.  Trades are resolved in Trade Phase. 
Use the Player Mats to keep track of status of PT.  
Gathering Option: Activate a PT to gain 1 FT (Plant variety). 
Prayer Option: Activate a PT to gain 1 ST. 
Work Option: Activate a PT to gain 1 CT. 

If you have more LT than PT, gain FT equal to the difference. 
If you have less LT than PT, lose FT equal to the difference. 

Each player discards FT equal to their PT. 
If they are short roll once on the Starvation Table for each FT they are short. 

1D6	Result:
1-2	Lose 1 PT
3-4	Lose 1D6 HT or 1 PT
5-6	Lose 1D6 ST or 1PT

Players take turns conducting Raids. 
Start with the Eagle Feather holder and then go clockwise. 
Each PT held in reserve conducts its own raid. 
When making a Raid, declare the target of the Raid: 
Target Opponent, Non-player Tribe, or White Men. 
The max number of Raids you can conduct against a single opponent in a turn is two. 
Roll once on the Indicated Table for each raiding party: 
When raiding an opponent, add 1 if you have more weapons. 
When raiding an opponent, add 1 if you have more horses. 
Every time you go on a Raid, lose 1 WT after the raid is resolved.
