Three Indians shown in this print have been identified as Utes, and six as Dakotas. The lithograph appears to to be based on individual photographs taken by A. Zeno Shindler in Washington, D. C. in 1867 except for Little Short Horn, whom Shindler photographed in 1858. All were presumably participants in a delegation to Washington, D. C. in 1867 (Negative Number 3684-B). The original negatives for individual poses are in National Anthropological Archives.

Suriap, a Ute (Negative Number 1573); Chippin, a Ute (also known as Always Riding) (Negative Number 1489); Pe-ah or Black Tailed Deer, a Ute (Negative Number 1576); Pretty Rock, a Yankton Dakota (Negative Number 3572); Grizzly Bear with the Great Voice, a Two Kettle Dakota (Negative Number 3558-b).
