Wolf Robe, son of a Southern Cheyenne chief, lived and fought with the Northern Cheyenne during the time of the Battle of Little Big Horn. He was about 80 when Miller painted this portrait in 1941.
“We never know exactly our years. The only way we could tell was from our picture winter-count. That told us what important event told us what year were born, but no months or days.” – Busby, MT 1941
