On Coronado's journey, he faced many conflicts that made his journey harder but he also met Indian's and saw buffalo.
As I said on his journey he meets the Wichita Indians. When he met them he asked if they had any gold or silver and the only sliver he found was around the chef's neck and a necklace. This is when he saw the buffalo. (bison)
Coronado faced a big river and lost one of his men but he did not find any fish, silver or gold so he decided to head back home. When he got back home he told them what he and saw and done but because he did not find anything he ended up losing his job.
