i visited few places, i saw little and to top it all i'm too nervous
Oh, I thought that was him kneeling in the centre of the front row.
I've seen a variation on the Miller photo on which 'Alchesay' is identified as Apache chief Black Foot. They were a group of White Mountain Apache scouts going to take part in some kind of exhibition in Phoenix and were picked because of their ability as horseman and marksmen.
Grahamew: yes, the man in the centre in your last photo is CHINO. And yes, the man knelling in the centre, with gun, in the photo "Alchesay again" is the same man of the last image posted by Naiches : ALCHESAY. It should be very interesting to know the name of all others warrior near him! Some infos about chief Chino? Thanks.
I agree with Charlie, that the man in the middle is indeed Alchisay and that the warrior in the last photo is Chino, although there are some who mistakenly identify him as Juh. The picture was most likely taken in the early 1886. Also I think that the Apache posted by Naiches as Nosey is actually Becalthey as posted in the Naiche thread. Note close resemblance:
Just to make sure, I did not mean that Becalthey and Nosey are one and the same man, to me they look so much alike (nose, mouth, even the eyes) that I would not be surprised that there may be a mix up in the identification.
