Chief Charlot American Indian

Chief Charlot, 30 x 24, oil on canvas

Chief Charlot, also know as Charlo, Claw of the Little Grizzly, was head chief of the Bitterroot Salish from 1870 to 1910. Here he wears a top hat and frock coat. His face is painted white.

This painting is inspired by a photo taken by Edward H Boos in 1907.


  1. As always, wonderful work. Chief Charlot looks very ghostly with that white paint.

  2. Thanks Lokelani.He is kind of spooky looking
