Portfolio IV plate 111

"Two Whistles (Ishichoshtupsh), born in 1856 was a Mountain Crow of the Not Mixed clan and Lumpwood organization. At the age of eighteen he led a party consisting of himself and two others, which captured one hundred horses from the Sioux. During an outbreak in 1887 Two Whistles was shot in the arm and breast, necessitating the amputation of the arm above the elbow. His medicine of hawk was purchased with a horse from a Sioux." -Curtis
