Chief Painted Horse Photo Print Dated 1899

  • This is a photograph print in color of Chief Painted Horse of the Sioux Indians. His name is partially hidden by the frame. Under that is "Ogalalla." That word is spelled a number of ways and means "to scatter one's own." It is one of seven subtribes of Lakota who make up the Great Sioux Nation. At the lower left is "Published by Burkley Printing Co. Omaha." At the lower right is "Copyrighted 1899 Heyn Photo Omaha." The Heyn studio produced over 500 images of Native Americans, mostly Sioux.


    It is in a curved wood frame with old glass, a long string for hanging, and a cardboard backing.


    Size: The frame itself measures approximately 10" tall and 8" wide. The opening in the back measures approximately 8" by 6".
