In 1872, a Pend d'Oreille Indian named Walking Coyote left his Flathead wife and traveled east to hunt with the Blackfeet. There he met and fell in love with a beautiful woman of that tribe and married her. In the spring he became homesick and decided to return to the west side of the mountain in company with his new wife and eight buffalo calves as a peace offering. The journey was difficult but successful although he received a severe beating from the Jesuit fathers who did not approve of bigamy.

He left the tribe but stayed in the Flathead Valley, raising the six surviving buffalo and these became the nucleus of a herd whose decendants now populate many herds in North America. He was one who saved the buffalo.


Tom Lovell
1909 - 1997 A Native American finding a Raggedy Ann doll on a lonely western road. A man teaching his blonde, gingham-dressed, settler wife how to shoot a rifle. A trio of Indians warming their hands over the chimney of a snow-buried cabin in an otherwise empty landscape. These are just three of the stories told through the art of Tom Lovell, considered by his peers one of the deans of Western art. But that’s not all. He was equally famous for his exciting and thought- provoking illustrations for such magazines as Life, The Saturday Evening Post and National Geographic—as well as his stirring images of sweeping Civil War battles which were considered so definitive that they were telecast as part of the famous Public Television documentary on the conflict and published in the accompanying best-selling book. Lovell was the first artist to win the National Academy of Western Art’s highest honor, the Prix de West, twice. He was elected to the Society of Illustrators Hall of Fame in 1974 and eventually named a Hall of Fame Laureate. In 1992, he was honored by both the National Academy of Western Art and the National Cowboy Hall of Fame with a Lifetime Achievement Award and a prestigious one-man retrospective show. He has left a lifetime of work that will influence, impress and instill emotion for years to come.
