The Native Americans

John "Liver-Eating" Johnson ... (c.1824 – 1900) was a mountain man of the American Old West. In 1847, his wife, a member of the Flathead tribe was killed by the Crow, which prompted Johnson on a vendetta against the tribe. Legend says that he would kill, then cut out and eat the liver of each Crow brave he came across. This was an insult to the Crow believing the liver to be vital if one was to go on into the afterlife. In any case, he eventually became known as "Liver-Eating Johnson".

Pima Indians, Arizona, Elias Bonine, 1875 | Early Pictures

My name is Little Dove. My people are the #Cherokee. There was a time when my tribe hunted the buffalo and lived free upon the plains. The white man came and all that changed. My people no longer hunt. My people are no longer free to roam the plains. The white man has changed everything. I long for the time when my people lived free and hunted the buffalo. I am the last of my tribe, when I am gone, all that will be left is a memory in history.

A Nez Perce Warrior on Horseback, 1910

Sitting Bull's 17 yr old son Crow Foot, lay down his life trying to stop his father from being arrested. Why was Sitting Bull arrested? In 1888 Sitting Bull rejected a new offer to sell Sioux land. The U.S. government became increasingly frustrated by his refusal to negotiate a deal and orders were given for his arrest. Deaths: Indian Police: 6 killed and 1 wounded. Sitting Bull's followers: 7 killed, including his adopted brother Jumping Bull and 3 wounded. Crow Foot, a hero in my book.

Sacred Feathers...Feathers in hair for Native Americans had a spiritual meaning. They were worn by Native American Chiefs to symbolize their communication with the Spirit, and to show off their divine wisdom. Feathers also represented the power of the thunder gods, along with the power of air and wind. Sometime feathers were representative of courage during a battle or a successful hunt.

something lives only as long as the last person who remembers it. My people have come to trust memory over history. Memory, like fire, is radiant and immutable while history serves only those who seek ...to control it, those who douse the flame of memory in order to put out the dangerous fire of truth. Beware these men for they are dangerous themselves and unwise. Their false history is written in the blood of those who might remember and of those who seek the truth. ~Floyd 'Red Crow' Wester...
