He is wearing a white shirt and black pants with a nice Tie and a bird as a tie tack
And a Fan in his left hand And since we cant see his Left Hand I am guessing there is a gourd but maybe not
But to me this sure does look like someone that has Gourd Dance clothes on

Comments Anyone????
Josiah,
Your keen observations of the items worn by "Walks With Effort" (1914) do have a similarity to Gourd Dance items. However, I believe you are seeing the manner of dress for a Ponca man (typical in 1914) that was a member of the Native American Church.
