Initially, it was the fawn that caught my attention in this photo, posing (sort of) among a group of people.
Later, as I studied the picture, I noticed the mix of white and Native American women with the men.
Often I think (fear) that in the early days, native wives were ostracized from the white population and white female social circles. This photo gives me hope that this wasn’t always so.
I would so love to know more about the people in this photo…
