Portrait of a young man wearing headband, earrings, and a necklace. There is conflicting information about the identity of the individual depicted. According to the Huntington Library, the man is Diné (Navajo), and his name "Bi-yazh'" is transcribed from Carl Moon's writing on the print. According to the Getty Museum, the model may actually be Esikio Tobar (1893-1950) of the Lipan Apache Tribe of Texas, wearing Diné (Navajo) dress. The man has also been identified as possibly being the Diné (Navajo) man Sohachee. Photograph by Carl Moon,1905-1907.
