TWO NATIVE AMERICAN INDIAN SIOUX OR LAKOTA Photograph postcards. The first is of three identified warriors consisting of: Marshall-Rising Hand: Mark-Setting Spider: and Jim Sweetgrass. The second is of a man and wife couple identified as Sam and Ellis Little Bull. Each is dressed in their finest traditional (and at the time their normal) clothing along with their weapons. These photographs were taken on the 101 Wild west Show tour of Europe in the early 1900's. The warriors fought against Custer in his last battle and did a reenactment during the show. Miller Brothers 101 Ranch show originated in Marland, Oklahoma in 1893. It was a contemporary show of the Buffalo Bill and Pawnee Bill Wild West Shows. The 101 ranch was a real working ranch and at the time was the largest in the world. After a long history the family passed away and the show went into financial decline in the 1930's. Happily, unlike the prediction on the cards, the Sioux tribe is strong and very much alive!
CONDITION: Both cards are in good condition and unused. Corners have small bends and a few larger creases along the borders. Very small specks on the borders of each. Age related aging on the backs.
SIZE: Each is: 4" Wide by 5 3/4" Length
CIRCA: My best guess is these are reprints from the 60's, but I could be wrong, they could be older. The paper (my scans) show more of a linen texture to the images than the eye sees.
Thank you for your interest! They are sold together and will mail together first class in acid free sleeves and a hardback mailer.
