This picture is of Whirling Horse. I consider this photograph to be a classic, and shows the man with full head dress, buckskin clothing, and blanket. It is believed that Whirling Horse was a member of a Wild West Show, possibly Buffalo Bill Cody's. So, in looking at the picture we must wonder whether this is the way he looked as a traditional Indian person, or whether this is how Buffalo Bill told him he should dress for the show.
"Standing Buffalo" Winnebago Tribe 1865 - Ho-Chunk, also known as Winnebago, are a Siouan-speaking tribe of Native Americans, native to the present-day states of Wisconsin, Minnesota, and parts of Iowa and Illinois. Today the two federally recognized Ho-Chunk tribes, the Ho-Chunk Nation of Wisconsin and Winnebago Tribe of Nebraska, have territory primarily within the states included in their names.
Wolf Voice Year: 1878 Artist: L.A. Huffman Cheyenne Warrior Frederic Remington was acquainted with several Cheyenne scouts after the battle at Wounded Knee Creek. He spent much time with Wolf Voice scouting the Badlands and discussing the war tactics of the army versus the tactics of the Sioux. Remington described Wolf Voice as a "magnificent type of Indian, with a grand face, a tremendous physique, and enough self-containment for a High-Church bishop."
