Photo: 'Wolf is his Medicine' (Crow medicine man). Apparently he appears to have been revered as a great medicine man. He healed a teenager, 'Pretty Shield', from a wound on her forehead, saving her eye as reported by Pretty Shield herself in F.B. Linderman's Red Mother.

​'We should understand well that all things are the work of the Great Spirit. We should know that He is within all things: the trees, the grasses, the rivers, the mountains, and all the four legged animals, and the winged peoples; and even more important, we should understand that He is also above all these things and peoples. When we do understand all this deeply in our hearts, then we will fear, and love, and know the Great Spirit, and then we will be and act and live as He intends.'

(Black Elk, Oglala Lakota)
