This represents a Sioux Sub-Chief with bow. He stands ready to defend his way of life. The expansion of the settled territories by Europeans and people from the Eastern United States was inevitable. You just can't have all that virgin territory and not have people who think, if it isn't deeded land, then it's open to those who also want to build a life as well as a future for their families.

The concept of owning land was foreign to Native American Indians. They controlled hunting grounds and traditional migration areas. They defended these areas for the survival of their people. Unfortunately, they didn't have a standing army, or supply trains to keep soldiers in the field. Indians had to break off and hunt for the food to survive the winters. They just couldn't win. In the long run though. They survived due to courage and defiance of warriors like the "Plains Warrior".
