Morton was born in New York but settled in London. His studio was in the Battersea Park area. These were taken in 1903 and, I assume, were members of a touring Wild West Show. I believe Cody's last UK tour was in 1902-1904:
There's a collection of his work in the National Portrait Gallery in London. I don't know whether there are more Indian photos.

was an actor, art director, stage designer, photographer and writer. He was born in New York to British parents. In the late 1890s he took up photography when he photographed an actor in Lillie Langtry's The Degenerates. In London Morton had a studio in 60 Primrose Mansions, Battersea Park. He specialized in stage and social portraits, experimented with the autochrome process, and became a leading Edwardian photographer.
In 1909 and 1914 he published two Books: The Art of Theatrical Makeup (1909) and Cinema Acting : A Handbook for Amateurs (1914).
Morton had a son with the same name (born in 1911), who was a known impressionistic landscape painter. He and his twin brother Concord were educated at home in Bembridge by his father and his mother, a writer of popular novels writing under the name of Concordia Merrel.
On England 1903
From 12/1902 – 10/1903 and again from April to October 1904 Buffalo Bill’s Wild West Show travelled Britain for a Farewell Tour. In 1902/03 he presented 333 performances of his exhibition with only one cancellation. These shows were arranged by Barnum & Bailey. The European Tours ended in 1906 in Belgium.
Luther Standing Bear (a relative of Daniel Black Horn), who joined the Show in 1902 as an interpreter, wrote later that 75 Sioux were in the show (among others Sammy Lone Bear, Thomas Stabber - stage name “White Buffalo Man” -).
On this tour Luther‘s daughter Alexandra Birmingham Cody Standing Bear was born in Birmingham.
