Wordless Wednesday: Native American Koonces

Not a “wordless post” but this is an interesting picture to share.  From time to time I’ll run across Native American Koonce families, though I’ve not taken the time to fully research them.   Hat tip to John Paul Koonce who sent me the following picture he found.   This picture is Mah-nah-ee & Wah-zush Koonce, both Chippewa Indians.  This picture, taken by photographer Frances Densmore, shows them seated in a wigwam at Grand Portage Reservation in Minnesota.

The photo is part of the image collection of the Minnesota Historical Society.  More details are available here.
