General NotesFourteen Native American men on horeback are riding through an encampment. All are wearing some sort of headdress and tribal costume. Some are carrying staffs with feather adornment. The horses have beaded harnesses. They are riding through a meadow edged by a line of trees where people stand watching. There are five tipis spaced along the tree line on the meadow. On the opposite side of the photo is a photographer dressed in European-American clothing and a camera. Some of the people watching are wearing cowboy hats and are wrapped in blankets.
TCI NotesAn outside photograph of a parade procession of fourteen Indian men on horseback. All of these men are dressed in regalia and the horses are covered in horse regalia. There is a camp visible in the background of the photograph consisting of four tipis and one long tent with the sides raised up. An unidentified number of spectators, both Indian and non-Indian, are visible throughout the photograph. Most of them seem to be wearing euro-american clothing. An open field is visible in the foreground and trees are visible in the background.
