Description
The head-dress of this Oto is characteristic of the older style, like that worn also by the related Osage in plate 680 and the adopted head-dress of the Comanche in plate 683. The medal worn by Old Eagle, in this case bearing the portrait of Lincoln, is like other medals given by the Government to noted chiefs from Washington's time.
