Description: 
Described in Vol. I, p. 193. In the text, Catlin reversed the numbers for plates 77 and 78 (Truettner, 1979, p. 189). Caption from Truettner catalog of Catlin's Indian Gallery. Entry from Catlin's 1848 catalog reads, "Pa-ris-ka-roo-pa, the Two Crows; Chief of a band; his hair sweeps the ground; his head-dress made of the eagle's skin entire; he holds in his hand his lance and two medicine-bags, the one of his own instituting, the other taken from his enemy, whom he had killed in battle." Originally painted in 1832 (Truettner, 1979, p. 189).
