2020 C. M. Russell Engagement Calendar (free with $30 Purchase)
Print (His Wealth)
Print (His Wealth)

- by Charles M. Russell (c. 1910)
efore the white man came and, to Russell's way of thinking, despoiled the land, the Western Indians lived a life that was simple, even spartan, yet rich beyond reckoning. At his peak, the plains warrior, independent, fearless and self-sufficient, rode with the haughty dignity befitting his station as "nature's nobleman," lord and master of a vast domain that provided his every want. "While the buffalo lasted, the Injuns counted their wealth in hosses," Russell observed. Horse wealth varied from tribe to tribe - a rich Plains Cree might own five horses, a rich Blackfoot forty or fifty. Estimated according to his needs, then the wealth of the plains warrior portrayed by Russell was substantial indeed.
