You are offerding on a rare cabinet card Photograph of Sioux Indian Police including Red Tomahawk, and two others. Eagle Man may be one of the others depicted. Red Tomahawk wears his Indian Police badge and holds a pipe and fan on the left side. This backdrop has been attributed to Zalmon Gilbert and hand stamped by J.D Allen on verso who was a Taxidermist at the time in Mandan North Dakota who was an also a painter and artist.

Also known as Tacasnhpi-luta, Red Tomahawk was a Yanktonai Dakota. He was appointed a Sergeant of the Indian Police at Standing Rock Agency. In 1890, supported by Sitting Bull, the Ghost Dance religion swept through the Sioux nation. Considering him to be the leader of the dissident Indians, the U.S. government decided to jail Sitting Bull and ordered the Indian Police to bring him in. Red Tomahawk rode 40 miles in four hours to give the orders. On Dec. 15, 1890, along with Lt. Bull Head, Red Tomahawk led the arrest group. Although Sitting Bull agreed to come peacefully, tempers flared and shots were fired killing Sitting Bull, Bull Head and 13 others. The outbreak subsided, but ended tragically one week later at Wounded Knee.

The photograph is identified on the front as Big Head which is a wrong title and was meant to be Bull Head who is Lt Henry Bullhead who was appointed alone with Red Tomahawk and other to take in and arrest Sitting bull and this is actually a Photograph of Red Tomahawk and possibly Eagle Man. The Zalmon Gilbert Photography name and list of Indians who were photograph by gilbert is on the backside. The photo shows signs of age but is in good condition for its age and would make a wonderfully rare addition to any collection, thanks and good luck offerding!
