The Comanche was a North American Indian tribe of equestrian nomads, and one of the most bellicose tribes. They moved south in successive stages, attacking and displacing other tribes, particularly the Apache, who greatly feared Comanche and in fact, they even asked for help to the king of Spain. The name Comanche is derived from a Ute word meaning “anyone who wants to fight me all the time.”

Thus, Elam Ferguson is living with one of the first tribes to acquire horses from the Spanish, and one of the most aggressive tribes of Plains Indians.

The Comanche were organized into autonomous bands and local groups. Buffalo products formed the core of the Comanche economy, but at the time of the construction of the railroad to the Pacific, they stole cattle and horses and also took thousands of captives from the Spanish, Mexican, and American settlers as well as from weaker tribes during warfare.

In Hell on Wheels season 4 episode 406 ‘Bear Man’, we saw how they have captured the wife of an American settler. However, Elam Ferguson is untouchable. Why? The Comanche religion consisted of a set of beliefs where animals played an important role, although the sun was ‘Father God’.

Elam Ferguson killed a bear and that means he has magic powers: the strength of the bear, and no one can beat him. Thus and after killing and Indian warrior, Elam could run away from the Comanche taking three captives. Two Indian women and the wife of the American settler.

At the end of the episode, he is already near Cheyenne. But Elam Ferguson has changed. He has turned into a ‘Bear Man’ and it seems he has lost his old wisdom and piety. Is he a Comanche now? Is he a psycho because of his head injuries? Would he regain his old personality when he meets Eva and Cullen Bohannon? We’ll see! Everything is a mystery in Hell on Wheels season 4. Anyway, we are happy with the return of Elam Ferguson.
