Item Details
Description
EDWARD S. CURTIS. Plate 265 Black Eagle - Nez Perce, 1905. 15.6x11.1" image on 17.9x12.5" copper photogravure plate. Plate date 1911. From Portfolio 8, Nez Perces, Plateau and Columbia River, of The North American Indian. Engraved on plate recto: Plate 265 / Black Eagle - Nez Perce, 1905 / From Copyright Photograph 1905 by E.S. Curtis / Photogravure John Andrew & Son.

"At the age of 16, Black Eagle, a big strong Indian, worked alongside Chief Joseph in the uprising of 1877. He demanded respect and got it."

There is a particular tale regarding Black Eagle's ability with horses. When he left the reservation and joined a rodeo, he left behind a horse with which he had a special relationship. A young man attempted to catch this horse many times, but did not succeed. When Black Eagle returned, he called the horse's name, whistled and held out his hat. The horse immediately approached and put his nose in the hat.

The "pompadour", seen in many of Edward Curtis's portraits, replaced the archetypal look of two braids with bangs worn prior to the 1890s.
