Tesuque Buffalo Dancers

The Buffalo Dance is still performed, though the original object of exerting preternatural influence on the abundance and accessibility of the buffalo no longer prevails.  The two male dancers are accompanied by the Buffalo Girl, who is fully clothed in native costume and has a pair of small horns on the head.  These three give a very striking and dramatic performance under the watchful eye of the head of the hunters' society.
