Sitting Owl Hidatsa 1908 Copper Plate
Item Details
Description
EDWARD S. CURTIS. Sitting Owl - Hidatsa, 1908. 7.3x5.3" image on 9x6.3" copper plate. Plate date 1909. From Volume 4, The Apsoroke, or Crows. The Hidatsa, of The North American Indian. Plate recto engraved: Sitting Owl - Hidatsa / From Copyright Photograph 1908 by E.S. Curtis.

Sitting Owl was born in 1850. At the age of eighteen he accompanied a war-party for the first time. The following year he counted first coup on an Ogalala, and later on a Hunkpapa. When he was twenty-six, a war-party pursued three Sioux horse-raiders, one of whom he killed. During a Sioux attack on the Hidatsa village at Fort Berthold, North Dakota, the combined forces of Mandan, Hidatsa, and Arikara charged the Sioux: ten of his comrades were killed behind Old Dog as he counted coup on a dead enemy.
