What rule books have good army lists for Native American tribes? I have Yellow Ribbon – any others?

Looking for anything that will distinguish one tribe from another. Concerned mainly with SW and Plains Indians here. If the lists have a little "Hollywood" in them, that's okay.

Woodland- All infantry. Almost all musket by 1700.
Plains- All cavalry. Majority firearms by 1860.

I think that's about it.

Tribes were distinguished by social constructs, warrior societies, beadwork colors and designs, etc. -- not by any meaningful difference between Crow and Kiowa raiding parties.

Pikeman's Lament has had some North American army lists released by the author… pretty much everything in the future USA and Canada can be fielded as bow-armed skirmishers until the widesprwad use of muskets and horses.

Chris Peers' dedicated Indian Wars rules 'Too Few to Fight, Too Many to Die' includes tribe and/or region-centric lists.

The Tomahawk and the Flame, while a TSATF variant, contains some good general tribal characteristics. And it's free! link
