Eagle Arrow/Blackfoot Nation, Early 1900's.
This picture comes from the facebook page for the film Moses on the Mesa, where filmmaker Paul Ratner continues to post historical photographs of Native Americans. (A handful of the pictures here are from the Library of Congress.) Ratner's movie tells the true story of Solomon Bibo, a German Jewish immigrant who became Governor of Acoma Pueblo; the photo gathering that began as research for Moses on the Mesahas become a project all its own. To learn more about the film (and see more photos from the filmmaker's collection) check out ICTMN's interview with Paul Ratner
