Bruce Brown's 100 Voices...
Spotted Wolf's White Handled Pistols
By Renee Sansom Flood
Before the Cheyenne attacked, Spotted Wolf stopped at the mouth of Trail Creek and here he painted his son White Shield with yellow paint. He sang a courage song for his son, and then drew a picture of a kingfisher on the shoulder of the boy's horse with blue clay: "My son, if the kingfisher dives into the water for a fish, he never misses his prey. Today, I wish you to do the same thing. You shall count the first coup. Drink plenty of water and let this be your last drink until the fight is over."
