About the Black Mouth warriors
Soldier of His People represents a Mandan “Black Mouth” warrior. Such a man would keep law and order among the people, functioning as protector and policeman during important tribal events, change of village sites, and buffalo hunts.
During war, Black Mouth soldiers were among the bravest and fearless of all. This important society of men painted the top portion of their faces red and the lower black, which gave them their distinctive look and presence.
A note about Mandan research
Mandan research is not easily attainable, given the early, horrifying demise to European disease that this tribe faced.
What we do know is that, pre-European invasion, the Mandan were a wealthy group that took advantage of their location along the Missouri river to engage in commerce and trade with other groups. Because they had everything they needed for survival in one place, they were able to grow a sophisticated society.
