It looks like they are riding western style saddles. They are not riding bare back.

Geronimo, Cochise, and the Apaches were in the south-southwest. The Teton (Sioux) are in the north, like South Dakota.

I believe this is Geronimo (maybe Cochise) and his son. If you are near Tombstone, Arizona check their museum..

How would one go about looking for a particular picture that has stood out in my head for over 12 years. I saw this photo at the Portland OR Museum , in 03. It was the Pacific Northwest exibit.The photo is that of a older Native American sitting on a crevice looking out on to Crater Lake. I so loved this photo. It's b/w probably late 1800 or early 1900. It's so mesmerizing the way he's looking out. Thanks for any help .

This has got to be my favorite picture so far! The Lakota Sioux has always been (aside from my Cherokee ancestors) my favorite tribe. They have such a rich and beautiful culture. I love that they still keep their native language alive as well! :)

It was popular in the late 1800s and early 1900s to document the Native Americans. There were a number of these photographers whose work is stored today in the Library of Congress.

A great many of the old photos of native Americans in "authentic dress" are posed and fake.

And then one person has to go down this road. We get it. It happened. It was bad. This picture has nothing to do with that. This is like pictures of Black people in a good situation or a good pic and someone has to go omg but slavery etc. This is the issue the baiting when the issue isnt even being brought up at the time.
