Twenty-three Apache students [version 2], 1891Twenty-three Apache students [version 1], 1891

Studio portrait of fourteen male students and nine female students. The caption of the Cumberland County Historical Society identifies them as from the Apache nation and gives a date of 1891 for the image. Previous catloging for this version also says they are Apache students but says there is a date of 16 January 1892 in the caption.

Staff at the Cumberland County Historical Society have identified, based on comparison with other photgraphs, that the following students are in this group: Parker Whitney West, Ernest Hogee, Viola Zieh, Dorothy Dekhlikiseh, Naomi Merkel (Kohten), Janette Woods (Pahgostatum), Annette Suisson, Oswald Smith, Jason Betzinez, and Gail Marko.

Ten Pawnee students, c. 1891

Studio portrait of five male students (all wearing school uniforms) and five female students. Previous cataloging interprets the caption as identifying the students as Pawnee, and naming three of them as Rose Howell, Phoebe Howell, and Ann Townsend. Rose and Phoebe were both Pawnee students. There is no student named Ann Townsend so this may actually be Sam Townsend, referring to Pawnee student Samuel Townsend.
