Postcard Friendship Friday, Indian Chief, elderly woman and sand painting

This is the third large postcard I am sharing from my Native American collection. It does not identify this Indian Chief by tribe etc. There is a quote on the back of the postcard..."Here lived and loved another race of beings...The Indian of falcon glance and lion bearing." Charles Sprague
It is an oversized postcard of 6 inches by 9 inches. I wonder if the proud woman is his wife. (There are several Charles Spragues, one once being governor of Oregon, another a poet, humanitarian from the East Coast in the 1800's.)
I have included a photo of a sand Painting I bought from a live internet auction in New Mexico. I love the sand paintings from the Navajo Nation. This one is called FOUR SEASONS by E.B. Benally of New Mexico.

Thanks to Marie for hosting Postcard Friendship Friday. To see what others have shared go to
