Winter counts are histories or calendars in which events are recorded by pictures or symbols, with one picture for each year or winter. These winter counts are often recorded on Buffalo hide. One such winter count on display in the museum is “Long Dog’s” winter count. Lone Dog’s winter count records 70 years of memorable events for the Lakota Sioux. When viewing the winter count in the museum, it includes a reference guide to show you what each of these symbols represents.
