    Photo: 1872-75. The subject of this photograph is most likely a Tonkawa Indian scout serving with the U.S. Army at Fort Concho. The scout is equipped with a U.S. Army Springfield rifle, and he wears a regulation U.S. Army belt with rectangular belt-plate showing the Federal eagle. The short hair-pipe breastplate is typical of those worn by Southern Plains Indians. Source: Lawrence T. Jones III.

    The Comanche bow was deadly within 60 yards, which gave the Comanche warrior an advantage over the muzzle loading rifle. A Comanche could discharge a dozen arrows while a white man was loading a gun.

    Sacred Feathers...Feathers in hair for Native Americans had a spiritual meaning. They were worn by Native American Chiefs to symbolize their communication with the Spirit, and to show off their divine wisdom. Feathers also represented the power of the thunder gods, along with the power of air and wind. Sometime feathers were representative of courage during a battle or a successful hunt.

    Umbilical cord holders, Native American Indian

    In 1924, Native Americans were granted U.S. citizenship when Congress enacted the 'Indian Citizenship Act'. It gave Native Americans the right to vote & allowed them to keep their tribal citizenry. Very generous of us, seeing how they were here first and the white settlers took it all away. President Andrew Jackson tried to eradicate all Native Americans (Trail of Tears & the mass killing of buffalo)

    Chief Red Dog is a bit of an enigma. Very difficult to get any information on him. He was a part of the Sioux Alliance that brought about the downfall of General Custer at the Little Big Horn. He was the chief of the Makhaicu Sioux. Photo taken 1872.
