Identified in black ink as "Madwolf - Cheyenne Chief" on the front and again on the reverse.There is an additional inscription in the Cheyenne language, written in pencil on the front reading III-I-a. The same inscription has been added to the back. These matching inscriptions are suggested to be in the hand of Mad Wolf. Born in 1825 he was considered one of the bravest and wisest men in the Cheyenne tribe; he rode with White Shield to meet Custer's troops. Mad Wolf rode with the first war party to strike into Mexico in 1853, surviving a disastrous battle with Mexican lancers and led a war party in 1865 against Union General Patrick E. Mad Wolf finally surrendered to General Nelson A.
