Kiowa Elk Tongue circa 1891

Photographer H.P. Robinson's photo of Kiowa leader Elk Tongue and his daughter A-ke-a (A Nice Walk).

They are both in traditional dress, Elk Tongue is wearing a "war bonnet" while crouching with bow and arrow in hands and pointing to something in the distance. This is probably a pose for the photographer.
