Crediting Photographers

During their 1880 visit to Washington, DC, the Ute delegation toured a number of sites in the area.  On February 11 and 12, 1880, the Utes travelled to the new Carlisle Indian School in Pennsylvania. During this visit, photographer John N. Choate made portaits of each delegation member. Ouray also posed with Ignacio of the Southern Utes and with Chipeta (in the photo at left). The Choate photos are easily identified by the shaggy rug which appears in each image. However, many collections credit this photo to other studios (which copied the image) while Mathew Brady’s January 29,1880 portrait of the couple is incorrectly identified as Choate’s work.
