by Auguste Joliet/Emmanuel Domenech

Antique print of Crow Chief, North American Indian.

Small original wood engraving by Auguste Joliet (fl. 1861-1878), colour-printed on white background with tinted margin, for Seven years' residence in the great deserts of North America by Apostolical Missionary, Canon of Montpellier (Barbados), member of the Pontifical Academy Tiberina, and of the Geographical and Ethnographical Societies of France, &c., the abbé Emmanuel Domenech (1826-1903). Published by Longman, Green, Longman, and Roberts in 1860.

The Crow tribe lived on the banks of the Upper Missouri, but "their disappearance was anticipated ät no very remote period”, destroyed by their incessant wars against the Sioux and the Black-feet Indians whose scalps they removed when vanquished. Crows are the most aristocratic and best-clothed Indians, if not the handsomest… and were remarkable for the immense length of their hair.
