    Description

    Nez Perce Chief Joseph: Print by D. F. Barry, Circa 1877. Iconic bust portrait of Chief Joseph, the chief of the Wal-lam-wat-kain (Wallowa) band of Nez Perce Indians. Chief Joseph's principled resistance to attempts to remove his band and the other "non-treaty" Indians to reservations led to his reputation as a humanitarian and peacemaker. Chief Joseph is regal with his hair in traditional braids and a bandolier over his left shoulder. The enlarged print on matte paper is stamped "Chief Joseph" on lower left and has D.H. B Barry's Superior Wisconsin studio label affixed to verso. D.F. Barry was a gifted pioneer photographer who photographed many famous Native Americans. Barry was known to his native subjects as "Icastinyanka Cikala Hanzi" or "The Little Shadow Catcher," due to his ability to capture their images onto paper. 8" x 10".
