The name "Padohgai," or "White Faced Buffalo Bull," is said to have been the original name of a prominent chief later known as Doha' or Doha'te, meaning "Bluff." I have been told by a Kiowa historian that the name "Doha'te" is supposed to have originated from a landmark in Wyoming, from a time when the Kiowas still lived in that northern country. Padohgai, or Doha'te was said to have been the father of the famous Kiowa tribal chief, Doha'san, or "Little Bluff," who ruled the Kiowa tribe from 1833 until his death in the winter of 1865-66. (James Mooney, "Calendar History of the Kiowa Indians," p. 263, p. 399) The name "Little Bluff," in this correlation, may not then be a reference to a small bluff, but rather, a distinction between the son and his father.I can find no other information regarding this obscure individual, but it is probable that he was a warrior of some significance. The support for this statement comes from references to a famous Kiowa shield, called the "Padohgai shield." The most information regarding this shield comes from the book, "Silver Horn, Master Illustrator of the Kiowas," by Smithsonian anthropologist Candace S. Greene, pp. 34-35. The shield was a family heirloom, originating with Padohgai, who received the shield design in a vision. It was yellow with blue dots around the circumference of a central disk, with a larger blue dot in the center. On the shield were attached a crow tail feathers, an eagle tail feather, antelope hoofs, two yellow cow tails with a cowbell attached, and a horse tail. Padohgai passed the shield to his son with instructions regarding the necessary rituals relating to the caretaking of the shield. A copy of the Padohgai shield was given by Dohasan to his nephew Agiati, and the shield rights were later passed down to Dohasan's son Haba.
