NATIVE AMERICAN INDIAN Real photograph postcard of a traditionally dressed Northern Plains or Plateau Chief. He is splendidly dressed in a native leather war shirt with over the shoulders beaded strips and lots of hand cut long fringe and leggings with wide beaded panels. He wears his eagle feathered headdress with beautiful ribbon streamers. His hands are covered with large beaded cuffed gloves or guantlets. He is astride his paint horse and is sitting on the largest mountain lion (?) hide I have ever seen. He holds his metal pipe tomahawk in his hand and has a riding quirt on his wrist. The horse is possibly wearing a facial horse mask with a huge feather bundle on his forelock. The setting is a traditional native camp. The designs on his glove scream plateau, but he could be farther north on into Canada.
CONDITION: Good, slight wear on all 4 corners, unposted, pencil message on back, no bad creases or stains, tears or rips.
CIRCA: EKC in stamp corner: 1939 to 1950
