Geo Bird Grinnell, January I continued to rapidly accumulate books, both softbound and hardbound, periodicals, catalogs and other ephemera. With that said, here are my choices for the definitive books. Russell, Word Painter, edited by Brian W. The Trips My publication collecting has continued into retirement, but perhaps my most memorable Russell experiences during the last dozen years are trips I have taken to view major Russell museum collections and historical sites.
The first of these was in the summer of My brother and his wife joined us on a drive from our Colorado homes through Montana. Our first destination was the Jake Hoover cabin near Utica where Russell had spent part of his youth learning from the trapper and hunter.
We then drove to Great Falls to visit the Charles M. The visit to the museum and Mackay Collection was excellent, but disaster loomed. I pleaded for a peek, but he was adamant. I even tried sneaking past the barricades, but to no avail. The second extensive trip we took was to visit major Russell collections in Oklahoma and Texas in The first stop was the Woolaroc Museum near Bartlesville, Oklahoma.
The overall art and Indian art in the collection exceeded my expectations, though I had hoped to see more Russell pieces on exhibit. The extent and variety of this museum is amazing.
I had already acquired the major Russell publications from these institutions, but I added some newer brochures and catalogs on their impressive Russell art. Absolutely fantastic; I was amazed that so many masterpiece paintings could be put together for a single exhibition. The End of the Search My year search for Russell-related publications has resulted in my making many friends and having some remarkable experiences.
As I recently said to Dippie, the fun is in the search and chase, but the chase is about over. Presently, my collection consists of more than items ranging from rare signed first edition books to ephemera, with a few bound collections of prints. Cushing lives in Estes Park, Colorado.

Russell was up for sale at RubyLane. One thing that Lakota accounts seem to agree on is that the Sihasapa and their Hunkpapa neighbors are sister tribes, offshoots of a single parent group.
One of the new treasure troves of the Standing Rock tribal archives is the collection of Col. As they migrated into and across the Missouri River valley during the 18th Century they acquired horses from the plains and firearms from French and British traders.
When Blackfoot and Sioux Meet Cross Stitch Pattern
Increased warfare and new European diseases decimated many bands and destroyed others, survivors shifting to join relatives across the Lakota world. It was a period of great change, and older divisions broke up and reassembled in new tribal groupings. New names replaced old, families found new homes or formed new bands. Bands ancestral to the Hunkpapa-Sihasapa group, for instance, were originally part of the Oglala but broke away, intermarried with other Tetons and other tribes like the Cheyennes and Arikaras, to create powerful new tribes out of the demographic chaos of the 18th Century.
According to traditions from the Cheyenne River Reservation where part of the Sihasapa also settled at a time when the Tetons were encamped on the Vermillion River in southeast South Dakota, a smaller camp stayed behind when the main village moved on. Meshing tradition with contemporary European accounts and maps, my guess would be that this split fits somewhere in the period One extended family group of the stay-behinds, maybe 60 people, stuck together to form their own tiyoshpaye.
Living in five tipis, they were a small band to claim autonomy — symbolised by a council fire that band elders preserved as they moved across the prairies — so they were known as Ti-Zaptan or Five Lodges. Direct descendants of this tiyoshpaye settled among the Sihasapa community at Cheyenne River. Like all Lakotas, young Ti-Zaptan people had to marry outside their band.Indian vs. Indian: Pre European Native American Warfare; Plains; Lakota Sioux
Because of strong purposeful leadership by wise elders, industrious women, and brave hunter-warriors, certain bands drew outsiders keen to marry-in. Such was the Ti-Zaptan in the midth Century, for over the next decades two new tiyoshpaye grew up and offshooted from the band.

The first offshoot tiyoshpaye were the Real Sihasapa band. Stories accounting for their origin recall a big prairie fire: So that is what we call it, those people. The cluster of these three founding tiyoshpaye was probably identified during the 19th Century with the Grass family and its political allies. His father Si Chola, or Bare Foot, is also said to have been a great chief. In his account to Welch, John Grass dwelled on the two bands Real Sihasapa and Crow Feather Hair Ornaments, just as he named them first in his version of the camp circle.

After the growing Sihasapa camp attracted growing numbers of outsiders, independent bands that brought their own council fires.
Fire Heart V was the direct descendant of one of the most important of these incomers. Perhaps the first of the incomers was the Hohe band. Perhaps they were originally an Assiniboine band that chose not to join hostilities against the parent-people in the warfare of the midth Century. Clearly a sizeable group inthe Horhetons disappear from the record, but the name Hohe persists as that of a small Sihasapa band.
The Sans Arc — the Itazipcho, or Without Bows — tribe is said to be the origin of another band, the Cowrie Shell Earrings, that intermarried with the Sihasapa later in the 18th Century.

Reflecting close political alliance with the Real Sihasapa founding cluster across the tiyopa entrance, they were assigned the place in the camp circle next to the north horn. At some point probably in the period a very prestigious family from the Miniconjou tribe joined the Sihasapa.
The family was that of Fire Heart. The first leader of that name was said to have been a Miniconjou who flourished in the s, according to family traditions collected by Col.
Fire Heart II seems to have been the leader who brought the family into the Sihasapa circle. Because the Sihasapa share one band name with the Miniconjou — the Glaglahecha or Slovenly band — it may be that the Fire Heart dynasty is to be identified with the Glaglahecha. Again, Fire Heart family descendants may hold the knowledge that can help us identify their ancestral tiyoshpaye. The Glaglahecha band among the Miniconjou is identified with another great chiefly dynasty of the Tetons, the White Swan Maga Ska family.
Given the context of this information, it is likely that in the final years ca. A rivalry existed in the 19th Century between the Grass and Fire Heart families.
