Biographical / Historical:
A biographical sketch of James White Calf submitted in January, 1949 by Mr Ewers: "James White Calf, full blood Piegan, older brother of Two Guns White Calf, and son of White Calf, the last principal chief of the south Piegan. The elder White Calf died in Washington, D.C. in 1903. "James White Calf went on horse stealing raids in his youth and counted coup. He was still living on the Blackfoot reservation, Montana in 1947. According to the Blackfoot reservation census of December 31, 1939, he was then 76 years of age. "In the 1940's James White Calf owned the yellow buffalo lodge, one of the oldest and probably the handsomest of the Blackfoot painted tipis."

Note from Mr John C. Ewers 4-27-53. These photos are definitely representations of James White Calf, son of White Calf, last recognized chief of the Blackfoot (Piegan) in Montana. According to the Blackfeet Reservation Census of 1908, James was then 44 years of age. That census records his father's name - White Calf; his mother's - Black Snake. I do not know whether or not he was the grandson of Big Snake, although it is probable, since my Indian informants stated that his father married 2 of Big Snake's daughters. However, one informant claimed James was the son of White Calf by still another wife. James White Calf was still living in 1951 on the Blackfeet Reservation. I saw him that summer. He was then one of the last surviving Piegan men who had taken part in intertribal warfare (ie. horse raids). His brother was Two Guns White Calf, now dead, a very picturesque Indian. You have photos of him also.

Subject identified 5/66 by Nora Spanish and Mae Williamson, South Piegans of Browning, Montana and transmitted by Claude Schaeffer, Museum of the Plains Indian (cf. also negative 420-a). A Piegan Indian wearing a Dakota style dress. (J.C. Ewers, April 1966).

Negatives 4700 through 4712 were made by R.W. Reed on an excursion sponsored by the Great Northern Railroad for the purpose of making photographs to be used in their advertising. Thus, though much of the equipment and dress of the Indians is traditional these photographs do not accurately portray the Blackfoot life style. The setting of the trip, Glacier National Park was, no doubt, selected for its scenic attraction, but in reality the Blackfoot never camped or hunted in the mountains, and when traveling went through them as quickly as possible. For, according to their tradition the mountains were the homes of the spirits. Information from J.C. Ewers, 9/70 JCS.

Another view reproduced in James W. Schultz, Blackfeet Tales of Glacier National Park, Boston, 1916, opposite page 42with the caption "Moving Camp from Two Medicine, The end of the procession." Schultz did the field workfor the text in July-September 1915. Thus pictures in this series (negatives 4700-4712) have all been dated as 1915. The photographer is stated as being R.W. Reed (p. X of Illustrations). See also remarks on catalog card 4700.
