Chief Killer and his family, 1906

Studio portrait of Chief Killer, his wife and family. Chief Killer is seated at left, wearing non-native clothes, and his wife is seated at right wearing native clothing. Standing behind them are two young women and one young man, all dressed in Carlisle uniforms. One of the girls is almost certainly student Maud Chief Killer, who would have been sixteen years old when this photo was taken. Seated in front, leaning on Chief Killer, is a young girl, probably in Carlisle school uniform. This is probably student Nonie Chief Killer, who was six years old when this photo was taken. Standing in front, leaning on Chief Killer's wife, is another young girl wearing non-native clothing.

Handwritten caption information identifies the date of this photo as November 16, 1886. This date is confirmed by a mention in The Indian Helper of Chief Killer's visit "with his wife and child." This implies that four of the five children in the photo were Carlisle students, members of his family. At this time we can only identify Maud and Nonie.

Studio portrait of a student believed to be Oconame Howerame.

An apparently later handwritten note on a white label appears to read "Henry Acoyame." A name is written in faint, indecipherable handwriting along the side of the image. 

Note: There is no record of a student named Henry Acoyame. However, student Oconame Howerame has outing dates which match those of students identified in outing records as A-Co-Ya-Me and Oco-ya-me. Therefore, it seems likely that the handwritten note on this image is a misinterpreation of some variation of Oconame Howerame's name.
