"What is life? It is the flash of a firefly in the night. It is the breath of a buffalo in the wintertime. It is the little shadow which runs across the grass and loses itself in the sunset."
- Chief Crowfoot [born c. 1836 - died of tuberculosis April 24, 1890, Blackfoot Crossing, near Calgary, District of Alberta]
Indian name Sahpo Muxika. Head chief of the Blackfoot tribe of Indians and a strong advocate of peace and subservience to whites.
