Volume, 12.5 x 9.5 inches
Vintage Photogravure
Photographed in 1907 by Edward S. Curtis, Crow dog was a Brule sub-chief who is noted to have once murdered Spotted tail as the result of a feud involving jealousy and politics.

The Brule tribe was a subset of the Lakota or Teton Sioux. Located in North and South Dakota or Montana. It was typical of the Siouan tribes for the men to part their hair down the middle as seen in this photo by Edward S. Curtis. This photogravure by Edward S. Curtis is from his 3rd volume and printed on Dutch Van Gelder paper. This piece is available for sale in our Aspen Art Gallery.
