This photograph was formerly in the collection of Colonel James F. Randlett (1832-1915, US Army commander and Indian agent at Fort Duchesne, Utah, until 1896 and Indian agent for the Kiowa, circa 1900); it was probably acquired by MAI between 1916 and 1923 along with Randlett's collection of Indian objects.
