Bear Comes Out

Fought in the Battle of Little Big Horn under Chief Two Moons. He counted a coup which made him very proud. He was 80 winters old when Miller painted his portrait on the Northern Cheyenne Indian Reservation.

"As a boy I went to the Little Chetis (Wolf) Mountains to seek a vision. After 3 days of fasting and waiting for the vision, I heard a hollow-sounding voice from a cave in the mountain side. A grizzly bear came out. I expected it to attack me, but it held back. Instead, it said, 'From now on you are to be named as Bear Comes Out.' So I've been called since then."
Busby, MT 1940
