River Agency Delegates
photograph is one of a series of images produced by
James H. Hamilton in September 1872, showing members
of two delegations that had arrived in Sioux City, Iowa,
enroute to Washington D.C. to meet with the president.
One delegation was from the Grand River Agency [later
known as Standing Rock Agency] and the other from the
Milk River Agency.
you compare this image to Gardner's 1872 delegate portraits,
they can be identified from left to right: Walking Crane,
Good Hawk, and Bull Rushes, all three from the Milk
River Agency. — Ephriam
