The Deadmond bison robe was only recently recognized to be a surviving example of late Historic period Plains Indian biographic art. Using characteristic motifs from the more than 20 biographic scenes painted on the robe, the authors identify it as Blackfeet. By using the Deadmond family history and a seriation chronology of other, better-known Blackfeet robe art, the Deadmond robe can be confidently dated to the last two decades of the nineteenth century.
