    Arapahoe Indian BA-HAW
    1912 Sawyer Bronze Galvano

    1912 Bronze Galvano, Edward Warren Sawyer, BA-HAW, Arapahoe Tribe, Geary, Oklahoma, Medallic Art Company. Uniface. 125 mm. Lustrous deep steel surfaces exhibit slight corrosion that creates an attractive stippled appearance. Two large size medallions and five small diameter pieces are currently identified. This is the only example that we know of outside of museums.

    Ba-Haw was also known as "Big Boy" or "Thunder." An Arapahoe named Thunder appeared in the 1903 Arapahoe Census. He was born about 1846 and was married to Julia Thunder who was born about 1865. They had a daughter, Clara Thunder, born about 1895, and a son, Frank Thunder, born in 1902.
