    Description

    Nineteen Indian Chiefs: Albumen Cabinet Photograph by J.N. Choate, Circa 1880. Scarce photographic portrait montage of notable Indian Chiefs, including Spotted Tail, Man-On-The-Cloud, Little Raven, and Standing Buffalo. The photographs were taken as part of a series J.N. Choate shot of Native American leaders who visited the Indian Training School at Carlisle Barracks in Carlisle, Pennsylvania. The Carlisle school was the first off-reservation Indian boarding school in the country, and the institution's mission was to assimilate Indian children from diverse tribes into one common culture. While the portraits are visually arresting, the series is also significant as a visual anthropological document. Printed label on verso identifies each portrait. Some corner wear and toning, one area of loss on blank area of back label. 4.25" x 6.5".
