Additional Information

One of my favorite places in the American west is the area near the incredible mountains of the Teton range, which were called the Teewinot by the Shoshone people who inhabited the area for centuries. The name means “many pinnacles”. Many Native American peoples would come to this bountiful valley during the summer months to hunt buffalo and other game, including the Shoshone, Blackfeet, Gros Ventre, and Apsaalooke (Crow). I have chosen to depict Apsaalooke warriors for the painting, as they come into a low-lying area with a group of buffalo moving and grazing in the distance. It would have been an incredible scene to see at that moment in time, as it still is today, where the buffalo still roam through this beautiful valley. - Martin Grelle
