A cabinet card of Standing Holy, the last daughter of Sioux chief Sitting Bull. The card was produced by the photography studio of Zalmon Gilbert in Mandan. Gilbert moved to the Dakota Territory in 1881, and established a studio there with another photographer, Alice C. Miller. An excellent example of the genre of Indian portrait cabinet cards, a popular way to obtain images of the American West during the period.
