For your consideration I have two original, superb and rare 5 x 7 dry plate negatives of Brule Sioux Native American Family members who were part of "Doc" Carver & Buffalo Bill’s Wild West shows and photographed by Charles Nordin, the Brule Sioux accused the Wild West performer and legendary sharpshooter “Doc” Carver of kidnapping members of the tribe and keeping them captive for his shows. Carver had this family returned to their reservation. Now knowing this historical fact, take a close look at their eye contact these proud Brule Sioux have with photographer Charles Nordin.
Mr.Charles Nordin partnered with Carver for many years in promoting his Wild West Shows, which included Buffalo Bill among many other western performers of the time. These dry plate negatives have never been published before. You will receive the original plates and direct prints of the images.
