Joseph No Two Horns (1852-1942) was a participant in the battle of Little Big Horn. He later fled to Canada with Sitting Bull and eventually returned to the United States, settling at Standing Rock Agency. His work, some for sale and some for his own use, was made to commemorate life events of his own and of the lives of the Lakota people (American Indian Art Magazine 18(3):32-43).
