Scope and Contents:
Photogravures made from Edward S. Curtis portraits of American Horse, Oglala; Hollow Horn Bear, Brule; and an Assiniboine/Gros Ventre man. Curtis copyrighted the original photographs in 1907 and 1908.
Biographical / Historical:
Edward Sheriff Curtis (1868-1952) was a professional photographer known for his images of Native Americans and of the American West. Born in Wisconsin, Curtis moved with his family to Cordova, Minnesota, shortly after his brother's birth in 1874. In 1887, Curtis moved again with his father to Seattle in the Washington Territory, where he built partnerships with several area photographers. Around 1895 Curtis began to photograph American Indians in the Seattle area. He joined the 1899 Harriman Expedition to Alaska as the expedition's official photographer and spent the summer of 1900 with George Bird Grinnell on a trip to document the Sun Dance on the Piegan Reservation in Montana. These experiences fueled Curtis' interest in American Indians and their culture and he set out to document every North American tribe before they "vanished." These photographs became the basis for his twenty volume "The North American Indian," a set of books which combined ethnographic descriptions and high-quality photogravures.

Red Dog, Little Wound, Red Cloud, American Horse, Red Shirt. Interpreter: John Bridgeman.

This is the "school committee" from Pine Ridge that went to Carlisle, Penn. to investigate the condition of the Sioux students there in 1880. From Carlisle, they and a number of of other chiefs went on to Washington to talk with government and railroad officials about permitting the railroads to cross the reservation. My material from the official records shows that Red Cloud, Red Shirt, Little Wound, and American Horse were four of the five chiefs representing the Oglalas. The fifth man was Red Dog, chief of the Oglala Oyukhpe band, and I think it would be safe to assume that he is the unidentified Indian seated on the extreme left, next to Little Wound. I have never seen a photo of Red Dog with which I could check this assumption. The Archives has a set of volumes containing photos by Gardner of the Sioux delegations in 1872. Red Dog went to Washington in 1872, but unfortunately, the volume containing the photos of the Oglala delegation is not with the others in the set. Red Dog was a close companion of Red Cloud and also supported the latter in his schemes. Both came to Washington in 1870, but I never saw any photos taken of that delegation. The white man standing behind the seated chiefs is John Bridgeman, who served as interpreter for the Pine Ridge delegation. Incidentally, I'm sure the two photos of Red Shirt used by Schmitt & Brown were taken at the same time this group photo was made. -- Harry Anderson, 119-11 233 St., St Albans 11, N. Y., Apl 2, 1956 to Mrs Blaker. Correspondence in Smithsonian Institution Files.

Scope and Contents:
From the Wrenne list and the list from the South Dakota Historical Society have been compiled a list for distribution which combines the identifications from the two lists. Mr Anderson used a copy of the Wrenne list, submitted to him by the BAE, and made corrections and added the Agency names from the South Dakota Historical Society photograph. The South Dakota Historical Society list did not contain the Indian names; these are all from the Wrenne list. The tribal identifications and other comments in parentheses are by Harry Anderson. Note: In January 1965 an original print was located in the U. S. National Museum. (Division of Ethnology) collection which has the individuals numbered and a printed list of names attached to the mount. Presumably this is like the one from which Anderson worked at the South Dakota Historical Society. A new typed list was made, January '65, crediting the N. M. print as the source (and correcting some previous mis-readings of Anderson's writing) of the English names.

The English names are taken from an original print in the U. S. National Museum collection which has the individuals numbered and a printed list of names attached to the mount. The Indian names below were supplied in 1937 by Vernon W. Wrenne, Rockford, Illinois, with the help of Indian friends and a missionary to the Indians, Mr Thomas Riggs of Pierre, South Dakota, then aged 90. Tribal designations and other comments in parenthenses were supplied in 1960 by Harry Anderson, Assistant Secretary, South Dakota Historical Society, Pierre, South Dakota.

Scope and Contents:
From the Wrenne list and the list from the South Dakota Historical Society have been compiled a list for distribution which combines the identifications from the two lists. Mr Anderson used a copy of the Wrenne list, submitted to him by the BAE, and made corrections and added the Agency names from the South Dakota Historical Society photograph. The South Dakota Historical Society list did not contain the Indian names; these are all from the Wrenne list. The tribal identifications and other comments in parentheses are by Harry Anderson. Note: In January 1965 an original print was located in the U. S. National Museum. (Division of Ethnology) collection which has the individuals numbered and a printed list of names attached to the mount. Presumably this is like the one from which Anderson worked at the South Dakota Historical Society. A new typed list was made, January '65, crediting the N. M. print as the source (and correcting some previous mis-readings of Anderson's writing) of the English names.

The English names are taken from an original print in the U. S. National Museum collection which has the individuals numbered and a printed list of names attached to the mount. The Indian names below were supplied in 1937 by Vernon W. Wrenne, Rockford, Illinois, with the help of Indian friends and a missionary to the Indians, Mr Thomas Riggs of Pierre, South Dakota, then aged 90. Tribal designations and other comments in parenthenses were supplied in 1960 by Harry Anderson, Assistant Secretary, South Dakota Historical Society, Pierre, South Dakota.
