Frank Albert Rinehart (1861-1928) è stato un artista americano famoso per le sue fotografie che ritraggono personaggi nativi americani, in particolare i capi e i membri delle delegazioni che hanno partecipato al Congresso Indiano 1898 a Omaha.  Le fotografie sono state realizzate con una fotocamera 8 x 10 pollici su lastre di vetro.

Attendees of the 1898 Indian Congress [Two Little Braves, Sac & Fox] by Boston Public Library. So adorable, and yet so tragic. Their braids have been cut which probably means they are students in a reform school.
