History

  In the late 1880s, the Sioux named Ohiyesa ("the Winner") left Red Deer Valley and his tribe to learn more about the world of the white man. His expert skills at tracking and handling a gun enabled him to win a job as deputy sheriff. While still a deputy, Ohiyesa was given the name "Pow-Wow Smith" by some townspeople, a name he used when among the white men. Once he became sheriff, Pow-Wow spent most of his time living in Elkhorn, only rarely returning to Red Deer Valley. He had a fiancee (later wife) name Fleetfoot, a twin brother called Horse Hunter, and a deputy named Hank Brown. His most recurring enemy was Tony Morley, the Fadeaway Outlaw. Pow-Wow Smith’s exploits eventually earned him an honorary US citizenship.

  In modern times, Ohiyesa had two descendants carrying on his legacy. (See Pow-Wow Smith II-III.)

  [Note: Originally, Pow-Wow Smith’s adventures took place in the 1940s-50s, but were then transferred to the 19th century. Eventually, it was decided that the 1940s version was the descendant of the 1880s version.]
