B for ABC Wednesday

Photo of Shoshone-Bannock Indians from Fort Hall Indian Reservation, Idaho taken at the Fort Hall Drug Store, circa 1895. The numbers are:

1. Tom Edmo,
2. Charles Deepwater
3. Percy Edmo
4. Canaker (canker) Johnson
5. Johnnie Gibson (bottom rt.)
6. George Edmo (bottom center)
7. Chief Arimo (bottom left)
--the white man pictured is Cye Napper, druggist.

Part of my hometown of Pocatello sits on the Reservation. The Bannocks were considered akin to the Northern Paiute people. Later in my life I went to junior and senior high with a few of the following generations of these men.

A wonderful photo made doubly so by having the names of the people in the photo. The fact that it was taken at the drugstore tells something about the culture of the time.

What a fascinating choice.

An interesting choice, is Native American history your subject? I am thinking of your museum work.

I love the old pictures of the tribal people. We have some hanging at school of our tribe and it is amazing how you see the resemblance from generation to generation in the faces.

That is one great photo and to have the names... that's quite the treasure. (wonder what their 'real' names were)
