A Wild West Show type of group with someone hoping to cash in by adding the famous names
This one was labelled Chricahua Apache...
Possibly Black Hawk of the Iowa, Shindler?
Little Drum, Winnebago
Crow Indians with priest
Not only is it unlikely, but the short hair pipe necklace suggests a photo taken in the 1870s or 60s
An Upper Brule from Ft Randall circa 1890
Guess this ianother Wild West Show photo...
Described as Warm Springs Indians, they look to me like a group on the fringe of the Plains - Ojibwe or Santee, maybe or further east (assuming they come from the same tribe...) Look at the ball head club the man at the right is holding

Graham you certainly have a knack of digging up obscure photos. The "Chiricahua" could well be a Jicarrilla man and the one labelled Payepot (who was a Plains Cree chief)looks like a William Soule pic -definitely southern plains.
Here's another Ree scout photo, same typeface on the framing card, though a different company. Same location, so same photographer, Wonder if the photographer is Morrow? He was still on the scene until 1881 or 1882, wasn't he?
"Medicine Wolf and Lover." The date given for this one was 1875:
Richard (Dick) Spotted Elk, son of Chief Spotted Elk (aka Big Foot), is indeed the man 6th from left. The way he looks I dont think this was taken around 1890, but more likely years later... I would guess around 1900. Wonderful picture though.
I'm with you on this not being Plenty Horses, but... but... suppose it is ten years on and we're looking at some thirty with his face filled out a little. Long shot, I know. I wonder who the older man is. I kind of assume that with the bonnet and the central position in two photographs that he must be someone significant.
Here's another photo said to be Plenty Horses...
If it is him, it's clearly well after the Ghost Dance period
