Montana masked Indian for 52 years, longer than any other Mardi Gras Indian.

Tootie’s was not only respected as a peerless artist and cultural leader, but also as a peacemaker who helped move the New Orleans Mardi Grass Indian tradition away from physical violence to artistic accomplishment and competition.
