"Kõsebier's Indian photographs, which are among her earliest and most remarkable portraits, fall into two groups. More than forty of them portray Sioux members of Buffalo Bill's Wild West Show; these are mostly studio portraits of Indian men but include some portraits of their wives and families and of life in Buffalo Bill's temporary Indian village in Brooklyn. The other group consists of at least nine photographs of the beautiful, accomplished young Sioux, Zitkala-Sõ, a teacher, writer, violinist and later a crusader for Indian rights, who was also known as Gertrude Simmons Bonnin." Page 29, Gertrude Kõsebier: The Photographer and her Photographs Barbara L. Michaels (Harry N. Abrams, Inc., 1992) [Please see pages 29-44 for an in-depth analysis of Kõsebier's Indian photographs.]
