One of the most beautiful photo I've seen in a long time: Father and Child, by Kathy Sharp Frisbee

Sweet little Cherokee girl......

Cherokee Indians value their family, however different from most situations, the women is under absolute control of everything. She holds her clans name, all the children belong to her, and the man must settle in her village after the marriage ceremony. The man is there to make children and provide meat for the family. As the husband’s ability to hunt exceeded the needs of his family, it is common that he is then allowed to have more than 1 wife.

Sacagawea (1788-1812) was a Lemhi Shoshone woman, who accompanied the Lewis and Clark Expedition, acting as an interpreter and guide, in their exploration of the Western United States. She traveled thousands of miles from North Dakota to the Pacific Ocean between 1804 and 1806. At about thirteen years of age, Sacagawea was taken as a wife by Toussaint Charbonneau, a Quebecer trapper living in the village. They had two children. She died at the age of 24.

    From the source: "The photograph is of another Shoshone woman made late in the 19th century, shown only to give a suggestion of how Sacagawea and her child may have appeared."

    You're welcome! I was suspicious when I saw this picture as I knew photography hadn't been invented yet when she was alive, so had to do some digging. :)

1880 Sitting portrait of Ouray, Native American Ute leader. He wears braids, a fringed buckskin shirt, leggings, and boots. The image was taken during the Utes' last treaty negotiations at Washington, D. C., only months before Ouray's death. "The Ute shirt, worn by Ouray in this and other 1880 photographs was presented by his wife, Chipeta, to Secretary of the Interior Carl Schurz, after Ouray's death in August 1880 and is now in the Heve Museum of the American Indian, New York City."

Apache Indian Crown Dancers. The picture is a bit blurry but still conveys a lot.

Ft. Apache Indian reservation. We visited retirement homes while we were here. I remember reading a children's book to a 92 year old lady...during the book she stood up and pulled up her dress and started twirling in was a sight to see.
