More about Brave Mandan

Brave Mandan is a portrait of a Mandan Black Mouth warrior. These men were the strongest, bravest, and fiercest of their people. They were in charge of leading war parties and policing the tribe. Their special war paint signified their importance.

This warrior is adorned with animal medicine—parts of an animal meant to impart the spirit and attributes of that creature to the wearer. This warrior wears a peregrine falcon in his hair, meant to give the warrior the same swift and fast abilities as this powerful predator. He also wears a braid of ermine fur in his hair, which is meant to make the warrior a fierce fighter.
