Visitors to this page:


Encampment along the Powder River, July 1863

Preparing for the hunt.

Return from the hunt

Celebration of a successful hunt; prayers for the continued success and safety of the tribe's hunters

Drying of skins, gathering food, and the daily tasks of living in the old West....but what lurks beyond the council fires?

General Connor's Cavalry surprises the encampment while most of the men are away hunting

The tragic massacre begins

The camp is overrun!

The few warriors left in camp fight desperately to defend their families
