Little Bird
Buy this print
This is a “pencil” of “Little Bird” an Arapaho which was drawn using a photograph for reference taken by photographer, Frank A. Rinehart.

What an honor, Karchner recently received an email from Little Bird’s great granddaughter Loretta Little Bird Steele. She was able to shed some light on her great grandfather. She said the portrait of Little Bird was taken at the TransMississippi & International Exposition in 1898.

There are a couple things about this portrait worth noting. Very strangely, “Little Bird” is wearing a crucifix around his neck. The other thing worth mentioning, it looks like he is wearing a political pin on his lapel. Loretta Little Bird Steele believes the picture is of William McKinley (1843-1901) who was president 1897 to 1901. What a great face and a fantastic study!
