Two Bears of the Blackfeet
The lives of the Blackfeet Indians were full of danger and
uncertainty. Surrounded by a harsh world where attacks by animals or hostile tribes,
sickness and starvation were ever-present threats, they relied on the spirit world for
protection. For the Plains Indians, the grizzly bear was second only to the buffalo on his
supernatural powers. The bear was revered for his strength, agility, vitality and
invulnerability to arrows, bullets and other animals. He was also to possess great wisdom
and the ability to find herbs to heal his wounds. The Blackfeet warrior Two Bears received
the powers of the grizzly in his vision quest. His vision spirit instructed him on the
contents of his "medicine bundle," an important symbol of his powers. Two Bears
has studied and emulated the ways of the grizzly and has become a mighty and bear-like
warrior, respected and feared by his enemies.
Runs With Thunder
To the Planes Indian the buffalo meant life. The buffalo provided almost everything
necessary to the Indian's daily life-food, clothing, and shelter. It was no wonder the
buffalo were so revered. This Sioux warrior has chosen the buffalo as his Spirit protector
and supernatural helper. The sounds of thunder and the thundering hooves of a herd of
buffalo are apt to sound alike. It seemed appropriate to visually relate buffalo with
thunder. This similarity became the inspiration for both the Indians name and the title of
Camouflaging the arrow was the key here. I purposely made the
arrow difficult to see at first glance. You have to work a little to get the key to the
puzzle. Once you see it, the story is waiting for you. For myself, I think the arrow was
shot by a young boy. Most warriors would hunt bigger game. But I don't think we'll ever
know for sure.
