Note: During his excursions to the West, Henry F. Farny became close with the Blackfoot, Zuni, and Sioux people. The Sioux called him Whizhays, meaning “Long Boots,” and Wasitcha, meaning “White Face Maker.” They represented his name with a symbol of a dot within a circle. The signature on this painting is accompanied by this symbol.
