Artist James Bama’s portrait of a Northern Cheyenne Wolf Scout is among
his most beloved portrayals of a proud warrior decorated with trophies
from both war and hunting. His headdress and armbands, made of wolf
hide, give him the power and stealth of the wolf. He wears a necklace
of buffalo teeth and around his torso is the rawhide lariat for catching
wild horses. Hanging down from his waist is hair from a scalp that he
carries with him so that the scalped person will be unable to kill him in
the afterlife. This scout has blackened his eyes and hands to represent
the claws and eyes of a wolf. On his face, arms and chest, he first
smeared buffalo or deer fat, then white clay from the riverbanks to
represent the white underbelly of the wolf.

It was an honor to be appointed a scout by a Cheyenne warrior chief.
Scouts ranged for days at a time looking for buffalo, horse herds
and threatening white soldiers. Usually three scouts would travel
together so one could always be on watch at night, and if needed
one could be sent back to camp with news. When the news was
important, the scout would howl like a wolf to alert the camp as
he approached camp.
