Co-written by Bob Marley and N.G. Williams, aka King Sporty. The song recounted the true story of four post-Civil War regiments of the U.S. Army - the 9th and 10th Cavalry and the 24th and 25th Infantry. These units were composed of black privates under the command of white brass, who fought for a quarter century against the Cheyenne, Comanche, Kiowa, Apache, Ute and Sioux. In the end, fourteen key black campaigners, whom the Indians had dubbed "buffalo soldiers," were awarded the Medal of Honor as part of a public relations move to justify and glorify the genocide of Native Americans, underlining the U.S. government's policy of manifest destiny. Such were the ploys that, then as now, comprised the politics of neutralization.


now you do :D

they were named by the Indians partly because their dark curly hair was so similar to the buffalo`s, but most importantly it was a sign of respect. The Indians felt that like the mighty buffalo, the Buffalo Soldiers fought ferociously to the end. Their motto became "Ready and Forward." it was actualy the cheyenne that first refered to them as buffalo soldiers.the reason i didn`t mention the LAKOTA in my first post is because they are part of the SIOUX nation as are the NAKOTA and the DAKOTA.each have seperate "bands" within the tribes like this:-

The Lakota have 7 bands:

Hunkpapa
Oglala
Sicangu
Miniconjous
Sihasapa
Oohenupa
Itazipacola

The Dakota Sioux (also called Santee Sioux) with 4 bands:


Mdewakantonwon
Wahpeton
Wahpekute
Sisseton


The Nakota - Yankton Sioux with 3 bands in modern times:


Yankton
Upper Yanktonai
Lower Yanktonai,

i hope this answers your question
