Their religious beliefs, of using every part of the buffalo became a major reason why they were able to live on the plains. Another reason they were able to survive in such a harsh way of life, was that they were a community in which Polygamy was encouraged. This was because of the outnumbering ratio of women to men, due to the men dying during hunts, and battle. This meant that each man could also have a lot more children than if he were to only marry one wife; the community would then grow bigger and stronger, for battle and for hunting.
