Thank you for uploading all the photographs, HinTamaheca, not only here but also in other threads.
I hope you don´t mind if I throw in some comments. The first photo above shows the Oglala delegation of 1870. The stereograph by Stanley Morrow shows Mandan men, not Lakotas. On left is Face aka Running Face, son of chief Red Cow and on left sits Little Bull.
It is wonderful to have these old photos available...I am especially interested in any information or photos of Red Hawk of the Blackfoot....if any one can direct me to this I would very much appreciate it. Thanks WindyG.....firstname.lastname@example.org

Kingsleybray; Thank you for the above information. I am wondering if there is a photo of Yearling/Hollow Horn the man mentioned above? & This is taken from the probate of Yearling aka John Yearling or Hollow Horn (Blackfeet head chief) he is the son of Black Shield (Blackfeet Sioux chief). "The evidence discloses that the decedent died Dec. 19, 1917, at the age of 80 years, unmarried at the time of his death and without issue or father or mother or brother or sister or issue of deceased brothers or sisters surving him. With reference to the claim of the first cousin, Esther Takes Him Standing, the Examiner who submitted the record advised that on account of a conflicting statement made by the claimant and one of her corroborating witnesses he recalled her and put her through a most thorogh examination which convinced him that she is of the relationship claimed, and should be found to be the sole heir to this estate. An attentive examination of the entire record leads to the conclusion that Esther Takes Him Standing should be found to be the next of kindred and sole heir at law surviving the decedent (Yearling) under the laws of South Dakota and it is so recommended. There is incorporated in the record an instoment dated Oct. 15, 1917, whereby the decedent (Yearling) devised and bequeathed all of his property to Francis Van Moore and his wife, Nancy Van Moore. Van Moore is designated in the instrument as a nephew of the testator (Yearling). The decedent (Yearling) lived with the Van Moores about four months before he died. There have been charges made that the Van Moores neglected the decedent (Yearling) and that they let him freeze to death in a tent. Van Moore was a bad character having been convicted of a brutal murder and charged with various other crimes. He disappeared in the fall of 1918 and there is every reason to believe that he is dead but under the law of South Dakota it cannot be presumed so until late next year. It appears from the evidence adduced at the hearing concluded Aug. 19, 1924, that the heir to the entire estate of the said Yearling and her respective share is as follows: Esther Takes Him Standing or Mrs. Alex Larrabee, first cousin----------ALL. At the time this estate had an appraised value of $7500.00 and an IIM account deposit of $4855.00 that is alot of value for an estate in 1924. (probate number 65011-1925, U.S. DoI BIA).
