American Heritage Wax Museum- Famous Indians

This tableau from the American Heritage Wax Museum in Scottsdale Arizona depicts three famous Indians posing. We see Geronimo, Sitting bull, and Red Cloud together in a scene that honors the historical significance of the three men.

Geronimo, an Apache medicine man and warrior, who fought the American government during its expansion into the west.

Sitting Bull, a Sioux holy man and warrior, most remembered for his defeat of General Custer at the Battle of Little Big Horn.

Red Cloud, a Sioux Warrior and leader, fought a series of battles against the United States. These Conflicts were known as Red Cloud's War.
