Rare cabinet photo by Saunders of the Chief of the Southern Cheyennes, Mad Wolf; or, Hahk o ni, or, Miv a wo nih or “wolf that has no sense” (1825 1903), standing holding his hat. Identified in black ink as “Madwolf – Cheyenne Chief” on the front and again on the reverse. There is an additional inscription in the Cheyenne language, written in pencil on the front reading III-I-a. The same inscription has been added to the back. These matching inscriptions are suggested to be in the hand of Mad Wolf. Born in 1825 he was considered one of the bravest and wisest men in the Cheyenne tribe; he rode with White Shield to meet Custer’s troops. Mad Wolf rode with the first war party to strike into Mexico in 1853, surviving a disastrous battle with Mexican lancers and led a war party in 1865 against Union General Patrick E. Mad Wolf finally surrendered to General Nelson A. Miles on February 10, 1875, along with other followers of Medicine Water. Size: 16.5 x 11 cm approx. Photos form part of the description.

GOFF NATIVE AMERICAN PHOTO. Up for sale is this one of a kind authentic piece of Native American and photographic history! The subject of the photo appears to be a scout affiliated with the Crow tribe. The mans belt is certainly constructed in the Crow style, that is, it has both beaded edges and metal tacks decorating it. A unique and curious feature of the subject is his hair style. T is unusual for him to have the sides cut/shaved so close to the head when Crow men would have long hair and the pompadour styled front/bangs. This feature only adds to the allure of this photo. Also notice he is not holding his traditional weaponry but rather a sword of the U. Army indicating his involvement likely as a scout. The markings on the back of the photo only add more intrigue. Goff was a famous photographer of the mid-late 19th century who made Native American people the subject of many of his photos. He is most famous and best known for his iconic photo of Hunkpapa Lakota leader Sitting Bull. As you can see, however, this photo is marked A. Goff, most likely referring to his wife Anna. They were wed in 1875. So this photo was likely taken sometime in the last 25 years of the 19th century. Also of note is that the location is stamped on the back as, Fort Custer, Montana. Fort Custer was established during the Indian wars in the Department of Dakota by the U. Army to subjugate the Sioux, Cheyenne and Crow Indians near present-day Hardin, Montana. It was built in 1877 and in use until 1898. The photo cabinet card measures 6.5″ x 4.25″. Shows signs of age and wear with some water marks and small tears. But overall the image is complete and, in my opinion, the true antique condition of this nearly 140 year old photo only enhances the way it captivates the eye. Would look amazing framed! Truly a priceless one of a kind piece deserving to be displayed. Track Page Views With. Auctiva’s FREE Counter.
