- Published / Created
- ca. 1900.
Internal evidence suggests that the album dates before 1902 (the year White Antelope, who is portrayed, died).
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).
- Individual photographs measure 10 x 12.5 cm, and have manuscript captions and numbers.
- 1 album (100 photographic prints) : b & w ; 14.7 x 19.2 cm. + copy prints (in 2 boxes)
