Red Cloud Tablet 51

Ancient Stone Finish only

The tablet in tribute to this great Native American leader incorporates the figures of eagle and wolf.

Born Makhpiya-Luta (1822-1909), he was chief of the Oglala Sioux, a warrior and statesman, who for a time successfully resisted United States occupation of what are now parts of Wyoming, and whose deeds marked him as one of the most important Lakota leaders of the nineteenth century. He fought to preserve the authority of chiefs such as himself, and his long and complex life endures as testimony to the variety of ways in which Native Americans withstood their conquest by whites.
