Fire Lightning, visiting chief, 1891

Studio portrait of a visiting chief, identified by the applied name tag as Fire Lightning. 

Note: An image of this chief is included in the composite group of visiting Sioux chiefs (linked to in Related Images) but there his attached name tag identifies him as Fire Thunder. There is another individual portrait of visiting chief, and in it he is identified in his name tag as Fast Thunder but in the composite he is identifed as Fire Lightning. We do not currently know which of these identifications is correct.
