Artist Commentary

Crow Fair has long tradition in 1904... The Camp Crier would herald the parade entrants to take their places. In this painting he is alerting the families... In the old times, he would rise through camp and tell the families to be ready to move to a new location that has fresh grass, water and game. He, also, spread current news.

Alex Medicine Horse served in this capacity until his passing. You could hear Alex at Crow Fair announcing the beginning of the procession in the Crow language from behind the wheel of a pick-up truck and through amplified speakers. The more things change the more they are the same.
