46. In Quest of the Cree 42x60 (2).jpg

In the min-19th century a Southern Piegan camp was attached by the Cree, a neighboring enemy tribe. Their white otter quiver and bow case was taken by the retreating enemy. The deeply sacred powers held within these weapons were difficult to replace.

The humiliation felt by the Piegan grew deeper with each passing moon. Chief Mad Wolf was therefore determined to see revenge against the Cree and retrieve the sacred objects.
