Group of Four Cheyenne Men in Native Dress Near Wagon, 1868


  1. It looks as though they're reservation types who gave up scalping and hunting to dig in the dirt, and accept the USGOV allotment. Hell of a way to end up...on welfare. And of course, many of their ancestors still are.

  2. Which one is madam warrens grand papi?

  3. It seems odd to me that most of the indian pics I see are of old guys. Old for the time, 40s, 50s. Were all the young bucks out scalping and looting, too busy for a picture?

    1. no, they were killed by the US Government. by 1895, killed off two entire generations of young men and women of the tribes. old men and a few babies were all that were left...
