Roan Horse [version 2], c.1885

Roan Horse [version 2], c.1885

Studio portrait of a visitor to the school, presumably a chief. He is identified on the reverse as Roan Horse from the Apache nation. 

The Cumberland County Historical Society's version of this image identifies him as Ai-sia-tiw-me or Comanche John. 

Note: A researcher has indicated that Comanche John was actually Comanche, but that he had run away to Mescalero Apache in 1879.
