During the days of the American Frontier the Manidoog did not have many direct interactions with their worshipers but often used their magics to aid the various Native Americans who worshiped them. This became more predominantly as white settlers began expanding into their natural lands. While the Manidoog remained neutral over many of the plights brought by these expansions, sometimes they would listen to the appeal of their people. One of the of the most predominant Manidoog gods that interacted with man was the wolf god Owayodata who empowered various Native Americans to be his defenders on Earth, each one taking up the mantle of Red Wolf. The first of these was Wildrun in 1760, who claimed to be the son of Owayodata. He defended the west before he was plucked out of time by Kang the Conqueror to be part of his Anachronauts. Owayodata chose Johnny Wakely to be Wildrun's successor in the 19th Century.
Manitou also exerted his influence during this time, blessing Comanche chief Grey Eagle's son the so-called Red Warrior who became his tribe's greatest warrior. Red Warrior once summoned the power of Manitou to slay some outlaws that murdered the owners of a trading post. Another Manidoog who appeared at this time was the Katchina known as the Black Ogre who came to the aid of the Pueblo tribe that worshiped him to slay white gun traders who armed Apaches to attack them. Black Ogre's activities were witnessed by Kid Colt.
