Chief Red Fox, an American Icon

by George Farias


SKU: 6836 Category:


An Essay. Chief Red Fox claimed to be a Sioux chieftain, a nephew of Chief Crazy Horse and son of Black Eagle and White Swan. He was nationally known and gave eloquent presentations of Indian lore primarily to school children in full Sioux regalia, particularly in South Texas since he lived at times in Corpus Christi. He was found out later not to be of Native American origin but a vaudeville actor and this tarnished his image. However, appearing as an Indian in silent films and with Buffalo Bill’s Wild West Show, he developed a broad knowledge of Sioux culture and became a great spokesman and champion for Indian rights.
