    T. Croft Cabinet Card of Ponca Indian Dancing Grounds, circa 1890s. The Ponca Indians were forced to restrict their land to a portion of Nebraska along the Niobrara River, but the government gave that land to the Sioux in 1889, then forced the Ponca to relocate to Indian Territory, Oklahoma. Here, Oklahoma photographer T. Croft has captured a group of Ponca Indians at their dancing arena. Many are seated, and fabric banners and flags wave in the breeze. Engraved on the negative: "Ponca Indian Dancing Ground." Image is affixed to Croft's gilt and scallop-edged photo mount bearing Croft's gilt "Oklahoma City, O.T." imprint.

    Condition: Mount corners are lightly worn, both the image and the cardboard mount are pristine. Very fine.

    We had a wonderful time in New York during the October 2013 Historical Manuscripts auction that featured my mother’s papers collected during her tenure as Martin Luther King, Jr.’s secretary. In fact, the entire experience from beginning to end has been a pleasure.
