Title

In the tobacco [possibly corn] fields.

Description

A group of men, women, and a young girl, probably members of the Crow Indian tribe, sit on the ground in a field crops, possibly corn. Some of the women wear dresses decorated with elk teeth and headscarves. Beyond the field are trees and hills. Information with the photograph: 'The man fourth from the right facing the camera is identified as Medicine Crow.' Note: In 2016, Tim McCleary said the photograph is of people shucking corn, and likely taken in the Lodge Grass area.
