here is something peculiar - sold in June 2014 at Heritage Auctions, Dallas billed as Sitting Bull's daughter - though obviously that is wrong - the pasted on name is Throwing Stick and by a later hand "Sitting Bull's daughter" was added. Most likely by some unscrupulous vendor to dupe a buyer (my theory)

actually by all appearance this is not a D. F. Barry image - possibly a O.S. Goff print who did use pasted on labels on some of his prints. It was sold in June 2014 at Heritage Auctions as part of a group that also included Crow Foot and Louis Sitting Bull or John Sitting Bull.
Yes, you're right, it is the backdrop featured in photos of members of the Sitting Bull Combination (though not SB, as far as I can tell), rather than the one used in the Gall photos. I wonder if she was a member of the Combination, though the name on the photo (and I've seen two more different images to yours and they all use that label) doesn't match the names of anyone on any of the lists of participants I've seen.
I agree with you both that Throwing Stick was probably with the Sitting Bull Combination of 1885. The name seems nowhere to be listed, but there at least were daughters of Black Moon and Slow White Bull in the group.
