SIOUX INDIANS IN WASHINGTON.
MANN, M.E. Imperial albumen print photograph, 6 1/2 x 10 3/4 inches (156 x 275 mm) laid down to larger mount, being a seated image of the delegation of Sioux Indians who visited Washington in May, 1875, posed with Government Indian agents, label to verso identifying subjects, photographer, and date, image heavily retouched in the negative, some fading and soiling, creases at corners of mount with loss at lower left.

The label on the verso identifies the sitters thus: "Swan, a Chief of the Minneconjous, / Black Bear, Chief of the Ogallallas, / Little Wound, Chief of the Kioksas, / Spotted Tail, Chief of the Upper Brules, / Lone Horn, Chief of the Minneconjous, / Mandan, Chief of the Two Kettle Band, / Red Cloud, Chief of the Ogallallas, / Rattling Ribs, Chief of the Two Kettle Band." In pencil, someone has added "(Sioux") after Red Cloud's name. The agents are identified as S.D. Hinman and Bishop Hare, both missionaries to the Indians. The note reads: "These Chiefs represent those Sioux Indians who have accepted treaty relations with the Government, and may be considered as midway between those wilder Chiefs who maintain an attitude of defiance, and those other Sioux ... who have assumed the white man's [ways]."
