Al-che-say, White Mountain Apache War Chief. Scout for General Crook. Circa Chief Alchesay won the Medal of Honor for extreme bravery in the Apache Wars.
Oglala Lakota, 1899. Notice how long the bone necklaces had gotten by the end of the 1800’s. They were much shorter in the mid to mid-late 1800s. That’s one reason the Little Bat photo of Crazy Horse that’s displayed as an almost official portrait now is most likely not him. The man in that photo has on a bone necklace like this, not really seen until the 1890s. Crazy Horse passed in 1877, when the short bone necklaces were worn. #native #history #oglala #lakota #portrait #color
