THE FRIENDLY CROWS IN FESTIVE PANOPLY "LET GRASS BE GREEN AGAIN AND HATRED CEASE" In their struggle for the bison pastures against the white man, the Plains Indians "fought the fight they could not win."

One of these Crow warriors wears chaps of bison hide. Long tubes of drilled bone form a kind of plastron or breastplate for the brave at the left; chains of bone disks content the others.
