Linked is the William Wildschut photograph collection of images taken during the 45th Annual Battle of the Little Big Horn Re-enactment.

First listed as Ich Ke Witzt, then Albert Porcupine, in Tongue River Reservation records, he is not to be confused with another Porcupine, the son of the famous outlawed Cheyenne Porcupine Bear. Little is known of his pre–Ghost Dance years. He told writer ... ANB
