Pow-Wow Smith
Real Name: Ohiyesa
Search for 'Pow-Wow Smith' on Amazon

During the 1880's, Sioux Indian brave Ohiyesa 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 a deputy sheriff. Sometime later, he won the job of sheriff of the town of Elkhorn and chose Hank Brown as his deputy.

While still a deputy, Ohiyesa was given the name Pow-Wow Smith by some townspeople. Though he used his Indian name with the tribe, he eventually began to call himself Pow-Wow 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.

Fleetfoot, an Indian maiden and daughter of Chief Thundercloud, set out to win Pow-Wow's love. She aided him in a number of battles with lawbreakers and eventually they became engaged. It is presumed that they were wed some time after the chronicling of his adventures.

In the present day, a descendant of Ohiyesa was named for his famous ancestor. This Ohiyesa attended college in the east, then returned to Red Deer Valley, seeking to bring his tribe into the wondrous 20th century. He too became a lawman and took the name Pow-Wow Smith, but he continued to live in Red Deer Valley and resides there even now.
