Related information: This image was found with a handwritten title page numbered A38/1 and several newspaper articles and book pages numbered A38/2-15, thus album 38 begins with number 16. The title page reads:
"Ouray. Head Chief of The Utes."
It can be found in PicDoc 292.
Related image: the three men in this image also appear in Am,A38.63, however the inscription for that image lists the men as Oglala not Brule, thus it is unclear which tribe they are.
