The right hind is an eagle feather with Walking Coyote credit. There are some elders who say those bison belonged to Little Falcon Robe and others say Walking Coyote. Little Falcom Robe was the son of Blanket Hawk. Blanket Hawk asked the elders several times to capture and keep some bison for their own herd. He was denied every time. Later when Little Falcon Robes’ mother married Walking Coyote, they said he was able to do what his father could not. I personally don’t know what version is the truth in history so I gave both credits. The left hind has a falcon feather with credit to Little Falcom Robe.

I welded over 16,000 hairs on this metal bison sculpture ~ ‘savior’ and like Demise she is made all from scrap metal.
