About Stamp

The explosive conditions on the southwestern prairies in the 1870s could have led to war. Two men of great stature, Crowfoot and James Macleod, preserved the peace. Crowfoot (1830-1890) rose to prominence as a Blackfoot chief even as European settlement, smallpox, tuberculosis, American whiskey traders, and the decline of the buffalo were weakening his once-mighty people. He realized that their survival depended upon reaching an accommodation with the government of Canada.

The complex association of Crowfoot and Macleod has been captured by Montreal graphic designers Wanda Lewicka and Jean Morin in a pair of se tenant stamp which connect opposing portraits of the two men on a common background. The designs are based on photographs in the collection of the Glenbow Archives. The photograph of Crowfoot was taken by Alexander Ross in 1887.
