Wolf Robe was a Southern Cheyenne Chief.

At a time when the nomadic peoples of the Great Plains had been pacified by reservation life, the pride of the Native American can still be seen in this portrait of Wolf Robe wearing a Benjamin Harrison Peace Medal.

During the late 1870s, Wolf Robe's tribe was forced to leave the open plains and relocate on a reservation in Oklahoma.
