Stalking Horse Series #15

Artist's Commentary

During the reservation period and after the buffalo were gone, Indians ranged far and wide for "real meat". Sometimes there wasn't enough of the white man's buffalo (or spotted buffalo) issued at the agency. They were given "passes" and ammunition to hunt when they were fortunate enough to have an honest white agent. Graft was rampant in the reservation system...the native Americans were sometimes short changed when having their issue staples weighed out. The unscrupulous agents pocketed the difference and sold the "surplus" to white merchants.

The buffalo were once considered the Indian's commissary and the tribe's defeat was accelerated by the buffalo's slaughter by white and robe hunters (with Washington, DC blessing). White encroachment also forced a plains animal, the elk, into higher country and this is where Indian and elk have met in this painting.
