Northern Plains Warrior

850.00

The Cheyenne are a tribe of Algonkian linguistic stock who were closely allied with the Arapaho and loosely allied with the Lakota Sioux. One of the most prominent of the Plains tribes, they primarily lived and hunted on hills and prairies alongside the Missouri and Red Rivers. They call themselves "Tsitsistas," which translates several different ways to "people alike,” "our people,” "red talker,” or "people of a different speech.”

This piece depicts a northern plains warrior with a war record robe wrapped around himself as was customary.

A nation is not conquered Until the hearts of its women are on the ground.
Then it is finished, No matter how brave its warriors Or 
how strong their Weapons.   -- Cheyenne Proverb
