YELLOW HORSE SIOUX 1908 Copper Plate & Gravure
Item Details
Description
1. EDWARD S. CURTIS. Yellow Horse - Yanktonai, 1908. 7.5x4.75" image on 5.75x9" copper plate. Plate date 1908. From Volume 3, The Sioux, of The North American Indian. Engraved on plate recto: Yellow Horse - Yanktonai/ From Copyright Photograph 1908 by E.S. Curtis.

2. EDWARD S. CURTIS. Yellow Horse - Yanktonai, 1908. 7.5x4.75" photogravure on 12.5x9.5" Holland Van Gelder paper. Print date 1908. From Volume 3, The Sioux, of The North American Indian. Printed on print recto: Yellow Horse - Yanktonai/ From Copyright Photograph 1908 by E.S. Curtis.

Curtis sketched a short biography of Yellow Horse in Volume 3, p. 190: "Yanktonai. Born near Standing Rock, North Dakota, in 1853. He went on the war-path first at the age of fifteen. This expedition was fortunate for the boy, as his party met a band of Apsaroke and he killed one. The next year the Apsaroke invaded the Sioux territory and he killed another. Yellow Horse led into the Apsaroke country a few years later a war-party that brought back a large number of horses. The following winter he headed a party of eleven on an excursion to the same place, and captured fifty horses, but being pursued by the Apsaroke, they were compelled to make a stand. Armed with a repeating rifle, he aroused the enemy's fear and drove him back. His medicine is a bird-skin tied in a yellow cloth; this he purchased never having had a vision. Yellow Horse married at nineteen."
