Twenty-one Crow students [version 1], c.1891

Portrait of twenty-one students-eleven male and ten female-posed on the steps outside a brick building, probably on the school grounds. The caption on the Cumberland County Historical Society's copy of the image identifies them as "Crows from the Crow Agency, Montana, who entered the Carlisle Indian School in 1890."

Previous cataloging for this image interprets part of the caption scratched on the plate as giving a date of 1897.
