Black War Shield Society

Does anyone know anything about the Kiowa Black War Shield Society? Is it a traditional group and what does it have to do with the gourd dance? I've noticed nonKiowas claim membership, especially when it comes to their right to gourd dance. There's a Kiowa BlackLeggings Warrior Society, but it has nothing to do with the gourd dance. I've been to several Kiowa functions and have never heard them mention it. Is it some sort of secret society?
