Pawnee Indian Baptist Church
Journal kept in a composition book by clerks of the Pawnee Indian Baptist Church, Pawnee, Oklahoma, and related photographs depicting Pawnee Indian members of the church and other Native Americans, 1907-1920.
Photographs in the collection consist primarily of images of members of the church. These images include a group portrait of the congregation at the church, and a group portrait of Maggie Knife Chief and family at the Pawnee Indian Agency School, 1911; group portraits of Pawnee Indians at a meeting of the Oklahoma Indian Baptist Association in Anadarko, Oklahoma, 1912; group portraits of Pawnee Indians at the railroad station at Darrow, Oklahoma, July 1914, with men identified in a portrait as White Horse, Robert Peters, Hole in the Ground, and Lester Pratt, and a receipt for two roundtrip tickets purchased on the St. Louis and San Francisco Railroad from Darrow to Pawnee; and images of a baptism of a man identified as the oldest Oto Indian, 1915.
Portraits of identified Pawnee Indians in the collection include David Gillingham and Hattie Smith Burns, identified as the wife of Benny Burns. Portraits related to Charles Knife Chief include images of him, his children, and of him with John Moses. A portrait of two Pawnee Indian women depicts Nettie Moses and Jenny Long Wolf, who attended the Chilocco Indian Boarding School in Chilocco, Oklahoma. An undated group portrait probably took place at a religious conference meeting and includes Harry Bock.
