"Inasmuch as the Teton, as their name (Tito-wa) indicates, have been prairie dwellers for centuries, they must be considered as such, disregarding their earlier forest life. it would seem to be without doubt that the vast herds of buffalo were the cause of their western movement. Their life was so closely associated with the bison that with the disappearance of the herds the Teton were left pitiable helpless." by Edward S. Curtis in "The North American Indian", Volume III
