I don't know who the Lakotas are, but this is taken on the east side of Beaver Creek about a mile downstream from the Spotted Tail Agency complex. The high white cutbank is still visible today. Unseen, but in the bottom somewhere to the rear of the shot were the buildings of Camp Sheridan, the military post established to oversee the agency.
Ephriam will know this better than me, but there is a similarly staged shot featuring Two Strike and his children.
Atop the bank in September-October 1877 was the scaffold grave of Crazy Horse.
