Title

Two Indians with camera and film.

Description

Two unidentified elderly men, possibly members of the Crow Indian tribe, stand on the bank of a creek across from a teepee camp. The men wear shirts decorated with beadwork and ermine pelts, leggings, and feather headdresses. One man is holding a strip of film up to the light as the other man looks on. Next to them is a camera on a tripod and a lance decorated with feathers. On the ground near the camera are other filmstrips, a box labeled 'Film Kodak Tank', a round metal container, and several film boxes. The camp includes five teepees and several bundles attached to sticks placed in the ground.
