Thomas Indian School Photograph. Traveler with Car and Canoe

Black and white photograph of Native American man posing next to an automobile that has a canoe mounted on the top. A pair of steer horns are mounted on the grill above the headlights. The man stands with his foot on the car's side board. He is wearing a leather fringed vest and a cowboy hat. A patch prominently displayed on his vest reads "Buffalo Museum of Science Explorers". A partially hidden sign painted on the side of the car indicates possible affiliation with an Iroquois [scouting?] organization. On the side of the front hood, a painted sign reads, "To Buffalo, New York from Gallup, New Mexico." The car is parked along the side of a road. A few houses can be seen through the trees in the background.
