Juan Julian, a visiting chief [version 2], c.1884

Studio portrait of Juan Julian, probably a visiting chief. 

This person is identified as Juan Julian in the National Anthropological Archives negative version of this image and also in one of the Cumberland County Historical Society's copies (BS-CH-006).

There are other photographs of a person with that name, wearing similar clothing but distinctly a different person.
