"STRUCK BY CROW"
Struck By Crow, Oglala, was a well respected warrior and participated in ten battles, including the Battle at Little Bighorn. His first battle was at the age of eleven. He counted coup twice in one battle against the Flathead. His vision quest had him fasting four different times. For one fast, he took buffalo skins to a summit to present to the Great Spirit. After standing until well after dark, he saw a vision of many white horses coming over a ridge toward a fork in the river. A short time later, on a raiding party, he and his companions captured many horses, including several white ones. This piece was inspired by a 1907 photo taken by Edward Curtis.
