War shields were designed for use in physical warfare, but Amerindian warriors carried a second shield as well. This was the medicine shield, which protected the spiritual power and energy of the warrior from cosmological and magical forces. The medicine shield was never used in battle but was more often attached to the horse to provide spiritual protection as the warrior rode to the battle.
