Holy Man - Holy City
by James Bama

“This is one of my favorite paintings because of the combination of the location and the subject,” says James Bama. “I had the chance to attend two different ceremonies this holy man performed. He’s a Crow Indian and a member of the Whistling Water Clan. The Crow are the only plains tribe with a clan system. I think there are about ten different clans in the tribe and the Whistling Water Clan is the largest. That makes him a very important person in Crow society and an impressive subject to paint.”

“The Holy City is a lava formation about eight miles from my house. It is in the Bighorn National Forest, which leads into Yellowstone National Park. The same volcanic activity that created Yellowstone’s landscape formed these. They are very dramatic. Putting the two together made a great deal of sense to me because they are both such moving subjects. At first take, one would think that they represent two very different kinds of inspiration, but the more you think about it, the more you realize they actually belong together.”

Blackfoot Raiders
by Frank C. McCarthy

A war party is on the move through the high Rockies. The rock formations and landscape are typical of Montana in the area near the Canadian border. A scout has led the way, ahead of the others. The Blackfoot scout often wore a wolf headdress . . . not as a uniform, but rather as a designation of his rank or position. Since the wolf was a hunter and tracker, it was appropriate for the scout to emulate these characteristics through his dress.
