Title

Waiting for rations.

Description

Large group of men and boys, probably members of the Crow Indian tribe, gathered outdoors by a barbed wire fence. Eight men stand and sit near a gate on one side of the fence and in front of the others who are behind the fence and on horseback. A building is in the distance. Note: Bud Lake identified O.S. Goff as the photographer. Note: In April 2016, Grant Bulltail provided information about this photograph: Probably taken around the 1890s at Crow Agency near Hardin. The men in front of the fence are the leaders. No women are in the photograph, even though the women usually went to cut up the beef.
