War Shields were undoubtedly the most coveted item in a warrior’s arsenal. It held his personal medicine, his spiritual totems and it was his protection manifested. Upon having a vision, which revealed the source of his protection, he would seek a holy man to interpret that vision and to paint and decorate his shield. The warrior would offer horses, eagle feathers or what ever else the holy man required as payment. Here, two young Blackfeet warriors are about to leave on a war party against the enemy and are seeking a final protective blessing upon their War Shields from the Holy Man. © Steven Lang OPAM
