KIOWA DUTCH ... white captive known as Boin-edal (Big Blond) by the Kiowa. Little is known about this unfortunate white captive, other than he was 8 yrs old when taken captive in 1835, the year the Kiowa Indians raided all the way to the Texas Gulf Coast. Both parents, only having arrived from Germany 3 years prior were killed. Boin-edal remained with the Kiowa all his life, unknown to the whites until a blond white man was discovered living among the tribe when placed on the Kiowa reservation.

Pre-mortem photo? Another Victorian habit: Your child contracts a fever, or you have reason to think an injury or illness may lead to death, you whisk the child off to a photographer. Yep, it happened and they were called Pre-mortem photos. Why suppose that is the case here? The inscription on the back of this tintype has the age and date of death. 3 years old.
