    Wonderful Cabinet Card Image of a Ponca Squaw Dance, 1894. Another in a series of photographs of the Ponca tribe, taken by T. Croft of Oklahoma Territory. It depicts a large group of women standing closely together, many of whom hold long poles with banners and flags of various materials which blow in a strong breeze. Other tribal members are seated on the ground, watching. In the background, a buggy with someone seated under an umbrella - presumably non-Natives were also interested in the ceremonial dance. Legend inscribed on negative reads: "Ponca Indian Squaw Dance. Copyrighted July '94 by T. Croft." Small areas of abrasion at upper left corner and near lower edge of image; light foxing at upper edge. Image is affixed to Croft's gilt-lettered mount, with scalloped, gilded edges.
