Abstract:
Photograph album by an unidentified photographer of Cheyenne, Arapaho and Kiowa Indians, probably taken in or around the Cheyenne-Arapaho Agency in Darlington, Canadian County, Oklahoma. The outdoor scenes include a large number of family groups, women, and children, many identified with Americanized names.
There are also notable images of the baptism of a Kiowa man, the "crow dance," meat drying on racks, Arapaho school girls, and a single image of what appear to be not Indian women but white woman dressed in Indian clothing, identified as "Calumet Squaws" (Calument was a town close to the agency).
Internal evidence suggests that the album dates before 1902 (the year White Antelope, who is portrayed, died).
