Twenty-two Gros Ventre and Assiniboine students [version 1], c.1891

Portrait of fifteen male students and seven female students posed on the steps of a brick building, presumably on the school grounds. They are identified in the Cumberland County Historical Society's copy of this image as being "Gros Ventres and Assiniboines, Ft. Belknap, Montana who entered Carlisle Aprl. 1890." 

Previous cataloging for this image interpreted the caption scratched onto the plate as saying that this group includes a Miss Prentiss, a teacher. We have been unable to locate any records referring to a teacher with that name and she is not mentioned in the CCHS caption. This caption also refers to the students as Assiniboine.
