(4 x 5 In) This is an original vintage photograph from the 1910s. This is American Indian assimilationist "Red Fox James" or Red Fox Skiuhushu, promoter of Native American assimilation and founder of the Tipi Order Of America,posing with a dog. The photo is signed in ink on the lower right corner, "To Mr + Mrs Gang, Red Fox James".

Red Fox, "was a national figure during the first two decades of this century. Sometime in his twenties, Red Fox began his cross-country fund-raising tours. Some of this work was apparently to benefit the American Red Cross... He rode a horse (usually identified as a pony) from Montana to Washington, D.C., at least twice. It was claimed that he had interviewed at least twenty-five state governors. He also raised over $15,000 for the Red Cross--a tidy sum in the 1910's. His most impressive speaking engagement was before 35,000 people at the New York City College stadium; the Secretary of War was in the audience."
