Hollow Horn Bear
Chief Mato-He-Hlogeco or Matho-Hexaloketca or Hu-Hu-Lo (Hollow Horn Bear or Bones) or Hoo-Hoo (The Bone), Son of Maza-Pankisko (Iron Shell) | Featured on a 1922 US postage stamp and a 1970 $10 Military Payment Certificate. Some sources record him as the basis for the image on the 1899 US five-dollar silver certificate and other depictions of Native Americans | Historical marker was erected in his honor in South Dakota in 1962.
An excellent portrait of Geronimo. One can sense from this portrait many expressions: defiance, pride, determination, an iron will and a visionary. Many of us will never completely understand what it's like to watch our culture and way of life slip through our fingers like dry sand.
