John Wilson & John Inkanish Caddo Indians Texas and Oklahoma John Wilson & John Inkanish Caddo Indians Texas and Oklahoma
NABD37. H.P. Robinson, Fort Sill, Oklahoma Territory. Caddo Dancing Chiefs. Boudoir Card, 7 1/2″ x 4 1/2,” of John Wilson, seated, and John Inkanish, Caddo Indians. The Caddo are a Southern Plains tribe related to the Wichita and the Pawnee, along the Red River. In 1874 they were relocated to their present reservation in Indian Territory, now Oklahoma. When the Ghost Dance swept through the Plains tribes, the Caddo were among those who adopted their own variant of the belief, a five-day ceremony of prayerful dancing. John Wilson wears a beaded cap elaborated with cow horns and feathers. A golden eagle wing fan with beaded cloth pendants is held in his left hand. He has a fringed and beaded leather shirt and leather half leggings secured by beaded garters. Inkanish holds a pipe-tomahawk. His leather shirt has a painted band across the center. His leather leggings are secured by beaded garters.  John Wilson was a Caddo-Delaware-French medicine man and religious leader. His Caddo name was Nishku’ntu, meaning “Moon Head.” Though he was of half-Delaware descent, quarter-blood French, and quarter-blood Caddo, John Wilson spoke only the Caddo language and identified only as a Caddo. He is believed to have been born in 1840, when his band of Caddo were still living in Texas. They were driven into Indian Territory in 1859. Wilson was a medicine man, who in 1880, became a peyote roadman. He became one of the most active leaders in the Ghost Dance in Indian Territory. During a two-week period, Wilson consumed large numbers of peyote buttons to gain new insights into conducting peyote ceremonies-“learning from the peyote”-and, as his nephew George Anderson put it “peyote took pity on him.” The tribe had been exposed to the Half Moon peyote ceremony, but Wilson introduced the Big Moon ceremony to the tribe. Included with this image is a 3-page copy of an interview with Mrs. Frank Cussins, of Anadarko, Oklahoma, conducted on July 12, 1937. Mrs. Cussins’ father was John Inkanish, half breed Caddo and white. VG. $1200

White Eagle, Ponca Delegation 1877 White Eagle, Ponca Delegation 1877 White Eagle, Ponca Delegation 1877
NABD39. A 7.5″ x 4.5″ image of White Eagle, Ponca Delegation, 1877 on a 12″ x 9″ mount for the U.S. Geological & Geographical Survey of the Territories led by F.V. Hayden, U.S. Geologist in Charge. On back it is noted that this is a William Henry Jackson print of a Charles Bell negative. Here is some info on White Eagle from the Oklahoma Historical Society’s site: WHITE EAGLE (ca. 1840-1914). White Eagle was the hereditary chief of the Ponca Indians. In 1879, when Standing Bear and other Poncas returned to their Nebraska homeland to bury Standing Bear’s deceased son, White Eagle led the Ponca who remained in Indian Territory on their assigned reservation. White Eagle reported to a congressional committee in 1880 that they had decided to remain in their adopted home. White Eagle left a narrative of the Ponca removal from their lands along Nebraska’s Niobrara River. He said, in part, “The soldiers . . . forced us across the Niobrara . . . just as one would drive a herd of ponies. . . . And so I reached the Warm Land [Oklahoma]. We found the land there was bad and we were dying, one after another, and . . . our animals died, and, oh, it was very hot. ‘This land is truly sickly . . . and we hope the Great Father will take us back [home] again.’ That is what we said. There were one hundred of us died there.” During ensuing years White Eagle and his followers overcame many hardships to make a home in Indian Territory. He was a progressive leader who favored allotment. A friend of the Miller Brothers 101 Ranch, White Eagle died on February 3, 1914, and was buried at White Eagle, a Kay County community named in his honor. VG. $1500
