Date:
1887
Scope and Contents note:
Photographs made from drawings by Tichkematse. The drawings document an 1887 hunting trip made by Colonel Bliss of Fort Supply and Major John Dunlop, a visitor to the fort from Washington DC. Most of the figures depicted in the drawings are Cheyenne men who were enlisted as United States Army scouts; many are identified.
Biographical/Historical note:
Tichkematse (1857-1932, also known as Squint Eyes) was a Cheyenne artist, Smithsonian Institution employee, and Army scout. From 1875-1878, he was among a group of Plains Indians held as prisoners of war at Fort Marion in Saint Augustine, Florida. While at Fort Marion, he learned to read, write and speak English. Upon release he attended the Hampton Institute for about a year before starting employment at the Smithsonian in 1879. As a Smithsonian employee, he prepared bird and mammal specimens for study and display and produced drawings illustrating his life on the Plains. Tichkematse returned to the Cheyenne and Arapaho Reservation in 1880, but continued to collect bird and mammal specimens as well as Cheyenne craftswork for the Smithsonian. In 1885, he enlisted as a scout for the United States Army and was stationed at Fort Supply.

Scope and Contents note:
Photographs mostly made by William S. Soule and George E. Trager, and probably acquired by John Rutter Brooke while stationed with the US Army at Camp Supply (circa 1873) and the Department of the Platte (1888-1895). Photographs by William S. Soule document life at Camp Supply, depicting Arapaho people (including Chief Powder Face), tipis and encampments, drying bison meat, and one image of Cheyenne captives, identified as Dull Knife, Curly Hair, and Big Head. Photographs by George E. Trager (through his studios Trager and Kuhn and the Northwestern Photographic Company) depict Red Cloud, Pine Ridge Agency, Rosebud Agency, and a Grand Council between Plains chiefs at Pine Ridge. The collection also includes three images relating to a Ute Bear Dance at Uintah Agency.
Biographical/Historical note:
John Rutter Brooke (1838-1926) graduated from Ursinus College shortly before enlisting in the 4th Pennsylvania Infantry division in April 1861. At the age of twenty-three, Brooke was granted the rank of colonel and served as the commanding officer for the 53rd Pennsylvania volunteer regiment. He led the 53rd at Antietam and a brigade of the Union Army's 1st Division during the Gettysburg campaign, leading to his appointment as Brigadier General in 1864. During peacetime, Brooke participated in the removal of Native American tribes to reservations. He commanded troops at Camp Supply in 1873, the U.S. 7th Cavalry during the attack at Wounded Knee, the Department of the Platte when the Ghost Dance War began in 1890 and the 1st Corps during the Spanish-American War. In 1897, he was promoted to major general and served as military governor of Puerto Rico and Cuba in the last years of the 19th century. Brooke returned to the United States as commanding officer of the Department of the East, eventually retiring to Philadelphia in 1902.
