This article celebrates the artwork of No Two Horns and provides some biographical information about him:
A cousin of Sitting Bull, No Two Horns told how he was born at the mouth of the Grand River in what is now South Dakota; that he first saw a white man at age 11; first went to war against the Assiniboine at age 14; first hunted the buffalo at age 17, in winter, when his hands froze to the bow. He first saw a rifle at age 19. A bear was the first animal he ever killed with a rifle of his own; before that he had shot them with a bow and arrow from horseback. He told that during his warrior years, he fought in nearly 40 battles against the Assiniboine, Chippewa, Crow and finally against the U.S. Army, including the biggest battle of them all in Plains history – Little Bighorn. He used a rifle at the Little Bighorn that he had taken from the Crows in battle two years before, in 1874.
