Honoring Plains Indians
Remembers is proud to sponsor projects honoring American heroes, as well
as legendary historical moments and individuals. We cannot change history,
but we can do our part to honor those whose contributions have been
overlooked or distorted. Today, America's special recognition

from around 20 million to near extinction.

Indian chief. The chief is wearing a traditional buffalo skull cap with
horns. The backstrap is also decorated in nickel and 24-karat gold. A
diamond war shield is shown with symbolic eagle feathers, beads and tepee.
The blued steel barrel is highlighted with
24-karat gold lettering. On the left side is the inscription "The American
Indian" and on the right, the revolvers edition number, from 1 to 300, is
featured in gold. The cylinder and frame are profusely etched and
decorated in 24-karat gold with decorative scroll and symbols of the
