Learn more about The Warrior and his Winchester
The Warrior and his Winchester depicts a Blackfoot man ready for battle.
He carries a Winchester “Yellow Boy” lever-action rifle, which began production in 1866. This weapon was a favorite of the Plains tribes because it was one of the first repeating rifles–warriors and hunters could shoot with it far faster than they could notch arrows into their bows. Plains people traded and raided to acquire these valuable firearms.
In his hand, the warrior carries a shield decorated with cliff swallows, birds that were revered by many Plains peoples for their ability to fly quickly and evade danger.
On his face, you will see red vermilion war paint. I’ve seen facepaint in similar configurations in my research of early Bodmer and Catlin paintings. The man’s hair is pulled up in a topknot and wrapped in a strand of leather or sinew, which was a common style both the Blackfoot and the Crow used to secure long hair up out of the face.
