NATIVE AMERICAN INDIAN real photo postcard of a gathering, possibly a ceremony. This card is an interesting photograph, it causes questions but not absolute answers. What I can see is a huge tent with the top folded back and the sides rolled up. The outside is surrounded by women and children, each covered in a blanket or robe. I see only a few men on the right side of the card. The lack of men tells me they are inside the tent. In the far right corner towards the top there are teepees and also what appears to be military tents. The arena has a huge center pole or tree trunk with other limbs and poles radiating from it. There are no horses, buggies or automobiles. Sadly, I can't tell exactly where the photograph was taken and by whom. It is possible it is a sundance ceremony, one of the most sacred ceremonies of the plains tribes.
CONDITION: GOOD! Card is unused. Has age related slight corner use, light yellowing of the back. There is a black mark in the sky on the left side, but it appears to be part of the photograph (a scratch on the lens?). Image is strong and clear. No marks and no odors.
CIRCA: Taking into consideration of the dress and lack of automobiles in the background, I think late 1800's into the early 1900's.
