Fort Reno Ledger Drawing / Unknown

Essay/Description

Stump Horn and another man meet with three women who are all dressed in reservation-era cotton dresses shawls, hair pipe chokers, and beaded moccasins and leggings. Stump Horn is riding on a paint horse and, like the other man, carries an umbrella. The horse wears a leather bridle with German silver medallions.
