    Description

    Chief Sitting Bull: Albumen Cabinet Photograph. Handsome cabinet card of the great Sioux chief taken circa 1880-1890. Sitting Bull wears a striped store-bought shirt, and a buckskin jacket with fringe, embroidery, and a fur collar. His felt hat has a Monarch butterfly tucked into the brim, and his hair is tied but unbraided. He looks into the camera with fierce determination. Image measures approximately 3.75" x 5.5" and is affixed to a photographer's mount measuring 4.25" x 6.5", which identifies the circulator as "Gibbon, Scotland, S.Dak." On verso in an unknown hand: "Brought from South Dak. Summer 1891." Very slight soiling of mount edges and upper corners of image, but these do not detract from this powerful photograph.
