Biography/HistoryChief Drags Wolf was a Hidatsa born in 1862 and raised in the traditional ways, spending most of his early life near Fort Buford. The band was forced back onto the Fort Berthold Reservation (which they had left in 1869) in 1894. This speech photograph is particularly interesting because Drags Wolf could not speak English. The man in the suit next to him is probably his translator.
