This is a interesting french link about the Old West.
Took my atention the idea of the indian sending his smoke signals for a wargame or diorama.

Question.
All the indian tribes used this smoke signals or only the apaches?

Thanks in advance for your guidance in this matter.

Hope you enjoy!.

Actually I'm pretty sure that the Apache didn't use smoke signals, at least if they did it was very rare.

I have read about them using mirrors to signal but not smoke.

Happy holidyas to you too my friend!.

About smoke signals… well, I'm confused. I always think that majority of the indians used this kind of communication.
