Collection History:

Horace Poolaw grew up in Mountain View, Oklahoma, and purchased a camera and apprenticed with landscape photographer George Long. Throughout his career, he focused on documenting the lives of his own people, the Kiowa, but also served as the official photographer of the American Indian Exposition in Anadarko, Oklahoma, in 1930. In 1997, the artist's daughter, Linda Poolaw, allowed NMAI staff to make this print from the original negative.
