Wolf is his Medicine (Crow medicine man). Apparently he appears to have been revered as a great medicine man. He healed a teenager, Pretty Shield, from a wound on her forehead, saving her eye as reported by Pretty Shield herself in F.B. Linderman's Red Mother.

Pretty Shield (1856–1944) was a medicine woman of the Crow Nation. Her autobiography was written with the help of Frank B. Linderman, who interviewed her using an interpreter and sign language. This book was perhaps the first record of the women’s side of Native American life. The Pretty Shield Foundation is named in her honor.
