Cabinet Card Photograph, waste-up and ID’d in the negative “Curley Crow Scout” by “Geo. E. Spence” likely from his Fort Sheridan Studio, waste-up, native attire, minor soiling along right edge, paper loss on mount lower right, yet handsome image. Curley, is the English name for Ashishishe (1856? - 1923), a Native American of the Crow tribe. Ashishishe was born in approximately 1856 in Montana, the son of Strong Bear and Strikes By the Side of the Water. Curley resided on the Crow Reservation in the vicinity of Pryor Creek, and married Bird Woman. He enlisted in the U.S. Army as an Indian scout on April 10, 1876 and was later chosen to scout for the Seventh Cavalry during the Little Bighorn expedition in 1876 along with fellow Crow warriors White Man Runs Him, Goes Ahead, Hairy Moccasin and others. He witnessed parts of the Battle of the Little Bighorn, and his translated account later appeared in several newspapers, as he was thought to be the only surviving witness from the U.S. side of Custer's Last Stand.
