He has the look of a warrior. I wonder what his take on Senator Elizabeth (Fake Indian) Warren would be?
Immediate scalping. She who speak with forked tongue and who cheats the red man will receive just desserts.
You could also cover her with honey and stake her over an ant hill...once you're done scalping her.
You post these injun portraits, CW, and I enjoy them, but they make me wonder what these injun folks looked like in their work clothes. I've got pictures from before the 1900s of injuns that worked on the ranches over in the Smoke Creek and they really looked like dark cowboys.
I don't know enough to say for sure, but I suspect that when they had these guys into the studio for portraits, they gave them peace pipes and Sioux style head dresses, because that's what people would expect to see. A lot of those pictures I don't post. This guy seems legit, but I can't say I truly know.Certainly, they wouldn't wear their best clothing when doing ranch work. Regular clothes would be far cheaper and more practical.
