Thomas White Horse

Thomas White Horse, a Hunkpapa Sioux veteran of the Battle of Little Big Horn, was 89 when Miller painted his portrait in 1940. A follower of Chief Sitting Bull, he took part in the Ghost Dance in 1890.

"A lean, almost famished, old fellow, he sparkled at the mention 'Custer's Last Stand.' He knew no English, so we spoke in Sioux."
David Humphreys Miller, Little Eagle SD
