This collection contains two copies of a pamphlet entitled "The Starving Blackfeet Indians" written by James Willard Schultz, 1921 November 3, and papers from the James Willard Schultz - Lone Wolf Museum, Inc. in Greer Arizona from 1994.
James Willard Schultz, or Apikuni, (1859 August 26 - 1947 June 11) was a noted author, explorer, Glacier National Park guide, fur trader and historian of the Blackfoot Indians. While operating a fur trading post at Carroll, Montana and living amongst the Pikuni tribe during the period 1880-82, he was given the name "Apikuni" by the Pikuni chief, Running Crane. Apikuni in Blackfoot means Spotted Robe. Schultz is most noted for his prolific stories about Blackfoot life and his contributions to the naming of prominent features in Glacier National Park.
