Joseph Medicine Crow - Bronze Sculpture

Bronze, painted bronze and horse hair, 22” tall, rotating black walnut pedestal. Limited edition of 35.

The last of the war-time chiefs. Passed away in April, 2016 at the age of 102. First in his tribe to receive a masters degree and while working to his doctorate world war II broke out. He joined the army and distinguished himself in Germany by striking his enemy, capturing his enemy, capturing his enemy’s horse and leading a war party. Thus, he not only received the bronze star for his heroics, but fulfilled the 4 requirements by the Crow nation to become a chief. He is the author of several books and held 3 honorary doctorate degrees. In 2009 he was awarded the Presidential Medal of Freedom.

Joe was instrumental in the formation of the Plains Indian Museum of the Buffalo Bill Historical Center.

His grandfather was Medicine Crow, also a Crow chief and warrior. His great uncle, "White Man Runs Him," along with 5 other Crow Indians, was a scout for General Custer at the battle of the Little Big Horn in 1876. They survived and lived to document the battle.

One of the castings of this bronze sculpture of Joe, a true portrait in bronze, was accepted by the Buffalo Bill Historical center to its permanent collection in the summer of 2010.

An edition of this piece is also on temporary loan to the Louisiana State Exhibit Museum in Shreveport, LA. Please call for pricing.
