Inscription.
Plagued with the loss of the great buffalo herds, the confinement to reservations, disease, famine, and poverty, Chief Plenty Coups led the Crow people through a painful transition.
Gifted with vision, the power of impressive speech, honor and dignity, he developed into a nationally respected statesman and patriot. The Crow people strive to follow his example today.
