Inscription: "I went to a hospital and that's all. I have never gone to school to learn White-man's way. The only western trade I know is construction; that's the only one I've ever been employed in. I will draw here, but I won't draw on the entire sheet. This is me — Peterloosie, E5 261 — I'm 30 years old. I have a beard and moustache. This looks like me, but my head has changed because of bad headaches last fall."
