    Description

    SOUTHERN UTE CHIEF BUCKSKIN CHARLEY. Buckskin Charley succeeded Chief Ouray in 1880, becoming the first Ute leader during the reservation period. He is remembered for leading the rescue of women and children that had been abducted during the Meeker Massacre in 1879. Buckskin Charley is seen here in middle age, standing in front of a teepee with a saddle on the ground in the foreground. He is wrapped in a blanket and looks proudly into the camera lens. Measures approximately 3½" x 4¾" and is in exceptional condition.
