George Bird and Elizabeth Curtis Grinnell photograph collection
Creators:
Tuell, Julia E.
Grinnell, George Bird, 1849-1938
Dates:
1902-1910
Size:
119 Negatives (photographic) (119 glass plate negatives, black and white, 7 x 9 in.)
Collection ID:
NMAI.AC.140
Repository:
National Museum of the American Indian

The core of this photographic collection (1902-1904) was taken during Grinnell's visits among the Northern (Montana, Rosebud County and Rosebud River, Lame Deer) and Southern (Washita County, Oklahoma) Tsitsistas/Suhtai (Cheyenne). The photographs document domestic and daily life on the reservation (especially activies involving women), religious ceremonies, camps and dwellings, and important officials. The attributions of the photographs in this collection are far from certain. While many of these images appear to have been taken by Grinnell himself, a substantial portion were also taken by his wife Elizabeth Curtis Grinnell (b. 1876) and their friend Julia E. Tuell. A very small subset of these images (3) also depicts mountains and vistas in Glacier National Park (Flathead County, Glacier County) Montana.
