Chief

This picture was taken in 1900, and shows an Indian Chief. The man's name was Whirling Horse, and he performed in Buffalo Bill Cody's Wild West Shows.

  1. Ah, another wonderful portrait by Gertrude Kasebier, the same woman who took, the Portrait (Miss N), shown the day before yesterday.

  2. Looks like a Tusseaud Wax figure. Looks like a man with a strong sense of calm.

    Looking at this picture, I recall the great but somewhat forgotten American actor, Jeff Chandler. He was a prominent actor in the 50's and starred along with Jimmy Stewart in the classic film "Broken Arrow" (in which he played Kochis). I believe that he was of American Indian heritage. A great classic western that I would strongly suggest anyone to check out. P>S. Chandler had a lucrative career but died on the operating table, the result of medical malpractice, in 1961.
