The photographer(s) of these prints is unknown. Likewise, the individuals portrayed in these photographic prints are also unidentified. One image (289_pht_007_001), was developed at the Perkins Studio in St. Paul, Minnesota, and dates to 1882. It portrays an unidentified Oglala Lakota (Pine Ridge) man, possibly a reservation policeman, posing with two young girls at Pine Ridge, South Dakota. Of the remaining 17 photographic prints in this series, two are dated to 1904, and the others do not have a date. Although specific communities are not identified, many images appear to portray Northern Plains and Central Plains American Indian peoples. Numbers written on the verso of these photographic prints were supplied by the donor, (the Dakota County Historical Society), and do not necessarily correspond with the processing or organization of these materials as they are now presented.
