"Born 1825. Mountain Crow. [...] Three times he dismounted in battle and alone held the enemy back. He has a record of having killed eight men - three Sioux, two Nez Percés, one Shoshoni, and two Piegan. Member of Never Shoots, Packs Game clan, and the Fox organization. Never accepted the lance of the Fox Society, but was four times placed at the head of the procession as they marched to the dance, a position accorded the bravest man present. Married fifteen times; gave up thirteen wives. Father of thirteen children."
E.S. Curtis, 1909
