Robert "Robbie" Summers Yellowtail and Dean Parisian


This is a picture taken when Robbie was 85 years old.   We were elk hunting high in the Big Horns on the Crow Reservation and Robbie wanted fresh meat.  He was a man among men and a good friend to my Dad.  He was packing a .300 Winchester and wanted to bring along a fresh horse.


I saddled his fresh horse after lunch and we kept hunting.  He was the first conservative Native American I had ever met besides my Dad.  Robbie had so much vision to share and I am better for it today.

Here is another picture of him and his wife, Dorothy.
