American Bison Skull
The American bison, also commonly known as the American buffalo, is a North American species of bison that once roamed the grasslands of North America in massive herds. Their range once roughly comprised a triangle between the Great Bear Lake in Canada's far northwest, south to the Mexican states of Durango and Nuevo León, and east along the western boundary of the Appalachian Mountains. Because of commercial hunting and slaughter in the 19th century, the bison nearly went extinct and is today restricted to a few national parks and reserves.

Sioux Indian Scalping Knife

The Hatchet Of He Dog
He-Dog told this story about Little Big Horn. “We crossed the river, chasing the soldiers who were now going up the Deep Coulee and many Sioux were coming. Crazy-Horse had turned up the Medicine Tail Coulee in pursuit of some soldiers at the head of the coulee. We shot long range with White-Caw-Bull until the first group of soldiers were all killed, then we charged a second group of soldiers using our hatchets because we about out of shells. We rode back to our lodges. Our families were not harmed. I fought in two more battles before surrendering with Crazy-Horse in 1877. After surrendering did not like reservation life, so me and a few others broke off the reservation and join Sitting-Bull in Canada. When I surrender at Fort Keogh, Montana in 1880, I had five holes in my hatchet, each was a proud battle. They put us on the Standing Rock Agency with Sitting-Bull, but later my family was transferred to Pine Ridge Agency.” In Lakota, kakankan means “to cut notches in.” This was a process that the Sioux used to count coup in great battles they participated in. The marks on the hatchet blade are holes that were drilled in halfway from each side by He-Dog and each hole represented a battle that he fought in starting with the Fetterman Battle (December 21,1866), Yellowstone (August 4,1873), Rosebud (June 17, 1876), Greasy Grass (June 25, 1876) and finally Wolf Mountain (January 8, 1877). The pattern of the holes as shown is also important because he repeated this pattern or his “life mark” on his war garments. He-Dog was thirty-six years old when he participated in the Battle of Little Big Horn. He was noted for his bravery. He-Dog lived out his life on the Pine Ridge Reservation as a proud warrior, and died in 1936 at the age of ninety-six.
