During the years of Treaties and negotiations between the Northern Cheyenne and Sioux in the 1800’s, many leaders such as Spotted Wolf, Red Cloud and other leaders visited Washington D.C. In doing so the government offered gifts of peace medals and beaver felt top hats. Such is the case in this sculpture. The Cheyenne is decked out with feathers in his hat and a beaded bear claw medallion.
