Male dancers.

Title

Male dancers.

Description

Five unidentified men and a young boy, possibly members of the Crow Indian tribe, are grouped together outdoors. One man sits on the ground and holds a drum. The others stand behind him, four wearing aprons or breechcloths, breastplates, belts, bells, beaded wrist cuffs, and feathers in their hair. Another man wears long fringed pants and jacket, and has paint on his face. The men hold sticks decorated with feathers, a plant with leaves, a flower or fan, and a rifle. Note: Printed on the postcard is 'Indian musicians - KFR', but the photograph was not taken by Kenneth F. Roahen. A similar image of this group is in the Richard Throssel Papers at the American Heritage Center at the University of Wyoming and is entitled 'male dancers'.
