I've seen this elsewhere (and a much smaller image) identified as the work of WJ Phillips, a photographer who went to Fort Sill after Soule. There is a vaguely similar shot that has notation on the mount saying it's an Arapaho camp at Camp Supply in 1869:
I recall reading on the smaller version that this is Big Mouth
The other photo...
And I wonder if this photo supposedly showing Red Moon, Powder Face and Whirlwind isn't also by Phillips. I'm sure I've seen a larger version of this and they're sitting under tees... Or, of course, it could be a Soule or a Bliss or...

I´ve tentatively identified the two men at left as White Crow (standing) and Tall Bear (sitting), both Southern Arapahoes. White Crow was a delegate to Washington in 1872, as was Big Mouth, who I agree is also in the full photo.

the man standing in the white robe, isn't he one of Little Raven's sons? Cf. the photo with his brother and father and Wm Bent taken at Ft Dodge; also the photo of him and brother used on the Contents page of Colin Taylor's The Plains Indians (Salamander Books, 1994).
Thanks for this discussion. So, who was Phillips? Was he there just before Soule or at the same time? If his one photo of the man and the line of women and children represents Washita captives as sometimes captioned. Soul also photographed a group of Washita captives. I can't locate any information on him. thanks
