DescriptionA Cheyenne Ledger Drawing
graphite and colored pencil on paper
This drawing depicts a Pawnee Indian surrendering to three Sioux or Cheyenne warriors, his horse having sustained two bullet wounds.
Buffalo Meat, or Oewotoh, was born in 1847. He became a warrior before he was imprisoned at Ft. Marion from May 1875 to April 1878. No doubt, it was at Ft. Marion where he recorded some of his battle exploits. After he was released, he became a Chief among the Cheyenne, even representing his people in a delegation to Washington D. C. On October 2, 1917, he died of tuberculosis in Oklahoma.
