Abstract:
Photographs show groups of Cheyenne and Arapaho Indians posed in front of tipis, tents, and trees, most likely in what is now Oklahoma. A few wear western clothing, and a white man and boy appear in some images. Individuals pictured include Mrs. Scabby Bull, Ethel Black Wolf, Rabbit Run, Wolf Chase, Coal A Fire, Strik-em-First, Singing Man, Jay Gould, Big Timber, and Myrtle Bad Man, among others. Two views of the Arapaho camp and one of the Cheyenne camp are taken from a distance. The album also contains two photographs of Niagara Falls.
