All of the above photos were taken between the years 1868 and 1880, or at the height of the Plains Indians wars (the Sioux uprising).  Those pictured are all Oglala Sioux, Crazy Horse’s people.  I came across these photos during my research on the Teton Lakota and these and MANY more great pictures can be found at Sioux Reseach - Dakota, Lakota, Nakota (http://oyate.proboards.com).  If you don’t know these peoples’ names, I’ve provided them in a caption with each photo.  And, if you don’t know their stories, I’d encourage you to read all about them.  Just read pretty much anything you can get your hands on concerning the Plains Indians, particularly the Sioux and Cheyenne.  They are, most probably, the greatest people who ever lived.
