Sabina, a Cayuse

Olin Levi Warner American

On view at The Met Fifth Avenue in Gallery 765

Warner modeled "Sabina, a Cayuse" in 1891 while in Oregon. While the six other Native American portraits that Warner executed at that time were of male chiefs, this medallion shows a fourteen-year-old girl. Although the inscription on the relief records that Sabina was a Cayuse, according to Warner's friend Charles Erskine Scott Wood, she was actually the daughter of Kash-Kash, chief of the Walla Walla.
