Description: 
Described in Vol. II, p. 134. Caption from Truettner catalog of Catlin's Indian Gallery. Entry from Catlin's 1848 catalog reads, "Toh-to-wah-kon-da-pee, the Blue Medicine; a noted 'medicine-man,' or doctor, at the St. Peter's, of the Ting-ta-to-ah band; with his medicine or mystery drum and rattle in his hands, his looking-glass on his breast, his rattle of antelope's hoofs, and drum of deer-skins. These 'medicine-men' are conjurers as well as physicians, paying their dernier visits to the sicks, with their mysteries, endeavouring and pretending to cure by a charm." Originally painted in 1835 (Truettner, 1979, pp. 164-165).
