Howling Wolf (1849-1927) was the son of Eagle Head (aka Minimic) a chief of the Bowstrings Military Society into which Howling Wolf was initiated. Both Eagle Head and Howling Wolf were exiled to Fort Marion in St. Augustine, Florida following the Red River War of 1874-1875. It was during his imprisonment that Howling Wolf produced a remarkable group of drawings documenting Cheyenne life and culture. His reputation as one of the great ledger artists is well established.
