    Osage Indian KAH-WAH-SE
    1912 Sawyer Bronze Galvano

    1912 Bronze Galvano, Edward Warren Sawyer, KAH-WAH-SE, Osage Tribe, Pawhuska, Oklahoma, Medallic Art Company. Uniface. 125 mm. A pleasing example that exhibits semi-glossy light chocolate-brown surfaces. Like so many others in this offering, the cataloger is aware of two large size and five small size examples of this variety, with just one other in a private collection.

    Kah-Wah-Se was also known as Yellow Horse and was a member of the E-Pa-Tsa clan of Osage Indians. He was married to Kea-Sum-Pa of the Pon-Ka Peace Maker clan. Yellow Horse appeared in several Indian Census Rolls in the early 20th century for Oklahoma. A representative 1913 Census states that he was born about 1857, and that he had a 46-year-old wife named Ke-Ah-Som-Pah, a 20-year-old daughter named Pun-Kah-Me-Tsa-He whose English name was Maggie Bates, a 16-year-old son named Ah-Kah-Hu whose English name was John Bates, and a 14-year-old daughter named Hun-Kah-Me-Tsa-He. The family also included two older sons who were born about 1887 and 1890.
