Description

I bought a book giving

Indian day history of this

port of Wis. The very first day [crossed out] time

Chas. and I walked down to the boat

landing, carrying the book in my

hand, an Indian stepped beside

me and reached for my book

saying "I show you my grandfather".

He turned to Yellow Thunder.

In the show this young Indian

man was quite highly honored,

and a sketch of his family history

was given by the white chief.

This pow wow place was the pow wow

place of the Winnebago Indians for

centuries. It is a natural ampitheatre;

rim one side, other sides all high

banks. There were various Indian

camps about Kilbourne City which

we visited. The one where this was

taken was across the rim and at the

right. Many Ind's were there, the

women making and selling lockets

beadwork etc. "Silver Tongue"

the splendid tenor singer from Northern

California was camped there.

Had a quiet Sabbath day in K.C. This

photo was taken Monday 24th in the

fornoon as we were leaving for

Milwaukee. Went as far as car would

go that day - Hatchards going on to [illegible]
