In a Piegan Lodge | Photograph | Wisconsin Historical Society
The original caption reads: "Little Plume with his son Yellow Kidney occupies the position of honor, the space at the rear opposite the entrance. The picture is full of suggestion of the various Indian activities. In a prominent place lie the ever-present pipe and its accessories on the tobacco cutting-board. From the lodge-poles hang the buffalo-skin shield, the long medicine-bundle, an eagle-wing fan, and deerskin articles for accoutering the horse. The upper end of the rope is attached to the intersection of the lodge-poles, and in stormy weather the lower end is made fast to a stake near the centre of the floor space." Indoor portrait of two seated men. The original glass negative also captured a box on the ground between the two men, which contained a clock or a metal. The copper-plate was retouched to remove the item.
