The spotted figure is identified as suffering from measles (a-got-hodal) rather than smallpox. This outbreak seems to have affected only some bands and not become a general epidemic.
1846-47 Shot mustache winter
The mustached figure is identified as Sitting Bear (Setangya) whose name is often rendered loosely in written records as Satank, he was shot by a Pawnee. While most Kiowa men carefully plucked out any facial hair, Sitting Bear did not.
1847 Red Sleeve killed summer
A Comanche man named Red Sleeve was killed this year. This picture may represent the name of the person killed, rather than serving as a portrait of the individual. Although the figure's hair is dressed like a man's with a cloth wrapped braid, the garment has the wide short sleeves of a woman's dress.
