    Fantastic D. F. Barry Photograph Depicts the War Party Council with Sitting Bull's Tribe. Imperial size albumen photograph of approximately 40 Indian chiefs and tribal elders gathered beneath a large open teepee to discuss pressing matters of concern to the various tribal groups represented. Sitting in the center is a man in a white shirt with a feather in his hair purported to be Sitting Bull, although we cannot confirm this. At lower right foreground, one brave stares intently at Barry as he takes the photograph. Image is affixed to D. F. Barry West Superior, Wisconsin gilded mount & edges. Very desirable and extremely rare photograph from Barry's large archives of famous Indians. Measures approximately 9.25" x 7.50".

    Fine-very fine, light wear to corners, touch of light contrast
