Through the centuries spotted horses have been given names ranging from the mystical Celestial Horses in China, to the Knabstrupper in Denmark, to the Tigre in France. Joining these marvelous marked horses is the American breed, the Appaloosa.
Very few breeds of horses match the beauty of the spotted Appaloosa. Developed by the Nez Perce Indians in the eighteenth century, the Appaloosa was known for its superior speed and endurance, as well as its distinctive and handsome markings.
An encampment of luminous teepees creates a beautiful, safe and warm refuge against the gathering storm outside. Just as the Native Americans themselves have weathered the storms of war and displacement, the iconic teepee remains an important symbol of ethnic and tribal identity and is symbolic of an ancient and fascinating culture that has persisted for centuries.
Pottery, textiles, children, and rain…such are the ancient, the sacred, and the cherished ones to the pueblo people.
By the 1880’s many Plains Indians were confined to reservations and dependent on a pitiful government welfare system. In desperation these Native Americans turned to an inter-tribal religious movement called the Ghost Dance.
For a people, whose highest ideals centered around war, the societies of the Plains Indians, made up of and for warriors, obviously held tremendous prestige. These “societies”, also called “clubs”, “bands”, “unions”, or “fraternities”, were sometimes graded according to age and most had important military significance. One of the most well-known societies is the Dog Men or Dog Soldiers of the Cheyenne.
Inspired by the Native American closing prayer of the day. This Nez Perce woman, dressed in her finest regalia of beads and dentilium shell deer skin dress, faces the West and the setting of the sun and gives thanks to the Creator for all of His blessings.
The Nez Perce people called themselves the Niimíipuu, meaning “the walking people” or “we, the people” and are an Indigenous people of the Columbia River Plateau in the Pacific Northwest region of the United States.
In principle, the Native American of the 19th century loved everything that fluttered in the wind. He wore his hair long; his horse’s tail and mane were long; he loved hide fringes and colored ribbon; and he especially loved feathers. Thus the Indian warrior topped off his flowing well groomed hair with a selection of breathtaking headdresses.
However it took root, to the Lakota the Fourth of July became one of the times that they could return to their native ways and as such, the Fourth and its symbol, the American flag, became well respected parts of their life and culture. The more they participated in these types of celebrations that embraced white culture and white symbols, the more these practices were sanctioned by white government.
Of all the plants known to ancient Indians, tobacco was among the most sacred. Considered one of the earliest forms of spiritual expression among North American Indians, the ritual use of tobacco was widespread throughout the continent. To Native peoples of the Plains the act of smoking tobacco through ceremonial pipes was a means of prayer used to give thanks, to establish new relationships and seal agreements, to mark significant passages of ceremonial life, and to begin important expeditions. Tobacco was believed to be a gift from the supernatural powers to men, and the act of smoking considered a message or prayer to the heavens.
Hanging behind this Sioux warrior is a fine Lakota saddle blanket, beaded on all four sides, the corners extending out to long fringes. To the right are the beaded horse hoof prints that signify the number of successful horse raids the owner has made. The red tail feathers worn in his hair, bunched together with an achievement feather from the tail of an eagle, are from the swift flying Red-tailed Hawk. This decoration is part of the warrior’s personal medicine to promote speed and agility in battle, horse raids or even in horse racing, a cherished pastime of every tribe.
Famous for their beautiful garments adorned with ribbon applique, the Osage Indians stand as one of the important nomadic Native American tribes of the Great Plains. Originally thought to have lived in the Ohio River area, the Osage wandered on to the Great Lakes, then to Missouri, Kansas, and finally to Arkansas and Oklahoma.
Situated in what is now northeastern Arizona, on the edge of the Painted Desert, the Hopi are widely considered to be the “oldest of the native people” within north America. The word Hopi itself is a short version of their name Hopituh Shi-nu-mu meaning “The Peaceful People” or “Peaceful Little Ones.” The Hopi Dictionary gives the primary meaning of the word “Hopi” as: “behaving one, one who is mannered, civilized, peaceable, polite, who adheres to the Hopi way.”
Hopi is a concept deeply rooted in the culture’s religion, spirituality, and its view of morality and ethics.
Flowing from the ancient Valles Caldera is the Jemez River which meanders through the heart of the Jemez Mountains and Santa Fe National Forest to eventually join with the Rio Grande in the South. This painting depicts a young Jemez Pueblo girl coming to that river to gather water in her beautiful Zia jar, a trade item from another nearby Indian village. Dressed in a traditional dark manta and trade goods like the woven red Hopi sash and Kewa jewelry, the young girl pauses to enjoy the cool water before dipping her jar into the life-giving river.
Five years after the momentous June day in 1876, Red Horse, a chief of the Sioux Indians, conveyed in sign language to a U.S. Army surgeon a detailed account of the events surrounding George Custer’s defeat on the Little Bighorn. Red Horse had played a prominent role in the battle, so in addition to his narrative, Dr. Charles McChesney, the surgeon who took his testimony, also persuaded the Sioux chief to draw a series of pictographs of the battle. The drawings behind Red Horse’s portrait are part of those 41 ledger drawings created in 1881.
To the Indians, the area was called the “summit of the world” due to the area’s unusual elevation, the “River of the Yellow Rock” in reference to the mineral deposits in the earth, and even the “Water That Keeps On Coming Out” describing the great geyser basins. We call it Yellowstone and hold it in the same kind of awe and wonder as the ancients did.
Beautiful and proud, Stands Holy is a perfect example of Sioux womanhood. This young woman was raised to revere the traditions and beliefs of her tribe, and pass those ways along to her children, just as her father did – the famous Sioux chief, Sitting Bull.
From infancy, most Indian boys were trained to be warriors. Their very lives revolved around the field of conquest, gaining the respect of their people and honors from the women. The importance of this can be seen illustrated on the very attire of a warrior who took great pride in announcing his achievements in various ways. One of the most stunning “war records” was the painted buffalo robe. The pictographs or “picture writings” on these beautiful robes told everyone exactly what a brave man’s claims of distinction were in raiding and war. A robe could tell of one encounter with another tribe or be an accounting of the wearer’s whole history.
In 1680, after the Pueblo Revolt and the expulsion of the Spanish invaders, the Hopi determined to defend themselves more effectively and moved many of their villages off the desert floor and onto the flat tops of the mesas. It was at this time that Walpi came to be, situated on the southern tip of First Mesa. Walpi, meaning “the place of the gap” has indeed stood in the gap of time remaining virtually the same as when it was first formed hundreds of years ago. A village in the sky.
