Frank Pine, also known as Blind Man, was 86 when Miller painted his portrait in 1941. A Northern Cheyenne, he fought at age 21 under Chief Lame White Man, who was killed during the battle of Little Big Horn.
“My nickname, Blind Man, came after I had a vision of a tall pine tree way out on the prairie where the only trees were cottonwoods and box elders growing along the river bottoms, so everybody called me blind.” – Busby MT 1939
