With precise detail, Matteson depicts a regal portrait of Mark Soldier Wolf in his striking dance regalia. According to Soldier Wolf, a traditional Arapaho Powwow Dancer from Wind River, Wyoming, "The Arapaho believe that no one plans their life journey, you just take what is given to you; life will continue to exist before this time and after this time.
