Omaha brave Double Walker wears a buffalo robe and leggings fringed with scalp locks. His hair is dressed with a roach of stiff animal hair dyed with vermilion and decorated with a single feather that may indicate he was a warrior. George Catlin painted this portrait at Fort Leavenworth (in today’s Kansas) in 1832. (Gurney and Heyman, eds., George Catlin and His Indian Gallery, 2002)
