    How about this photo?



    The only confirmed fact is that its identified as being taken at Pawnee, Oklahoma, but with no date or tribal designation. While its possible the men are both Pawnee, I'm not sure.

    The man at left has on what looks like a pair of fully beaded Southern Cheyenne moccasins and a fully beaded vest that could be Cheyenne also. However, his beaded apron seems to have Kiowa style design patterns.

    The man on the right has on what looks like a pair of Kiowa style moccasins, and Kiowa tab leggings.

    Any comments?

    *******

    And what about this one?



    This man is definately Osage, but there's no date or name.

    Anyone recognize him?

    The metal sequin patterns you see in the George Michelle photos are actually part of the vest he is wearing over his shirt.

    Creecher119 asked about the mirror board and all I can say about it is that it is a mirror board and it does seem to have a wooden 'frame'. It is just not as elaborate as many other mirror boards out there. Sometimes simplicity makes the most elegant art. And for what it is used for the most practical.

    My source identified these both as the same man. George Michelle.

    Take it for what it is worth. I am willing to bet that there are some Osage folks on the board that know a lot more about this stuff than I do.

    Ok, so here is what I know according to my source. All of these photos are of Osages. These guys are Frank Corndropper and Paul Buffalo. I will post another photo of the same two with Pierce St. John in the next post.

    Ponca ? - 1905

    George Michelle - Osage

    Osage - 1910

    John Wood (if I did not get them mixed up)

    My response is mixed in with the quoted response. Sorry I could not make it more clear.

    I acquired a Pawnee harness/belt, fancy dance set dating from WW II. It's base material was cotton cloth with a straight ribbon binding. The galluses did not hang below the belt; they were sewn to the top of the belt making it all one unit. Lots of the decoration was "spoked wheel conchos" applied with sequins and beads.
