Native American and African American cowboys.
The one site I found this from (that’s of course not working for me right now) said they were from the Chickasaw Nation. Another website gave no name or who took the photo just said “Native American and African American cowboys, ca. 1860-1870”. Either way this is a great photo. If any information on them please add.
Let me point something out for everyone: The pair shown here are father & son. It’s a shame that no one can see this. The boy has dark skin, so automatically, people refuse to see that not only do they share the exact same features, they have the same posture as well.
The fact that people cannot see what is evident is a direct result of whitewashing.
