PATRIOTIC NATIVE AMERICAN photograph, post card, of post World War II honoring ceremony. A group of Comanche or Kiowa native Americans are gathered beneath our American flag. They are dressed traditionally and as is native custom in some southern plains tribes some women and men are both wearing otter turbans. Also, several women are wearing feathered bonnets along with several young girls. Traditionally made and worn by warriors, soldiers and veterans or chiefs, in several native cultures the family members of an honored warrior are allowed to display his warrior status. I can't see the exact age of the old cars in the background, but they appear to be from the 30's and 40's. Many Native Americans fought and served in World War II and were greeted as warriors when they returned home.
The condition of this glossy black and white photograph is good. Slight bends or creases on all four corners. A scratch (?) in the lower left side (shows from the back, does not go through or show on the surface without holding it to the light just right. Yellow stain in lower left corner on border. Yellowing of back.
Photograph is 6" by 3 3/4" including borders. Photograph is from an Osage family. Please have a look at our child's flag and shield moccasins which represent a similar native belief.
