Description

Portrait of a celebrated athlete (named Potshuno) from Nambe pueblo, standing. According to James Stevenson's original note for this photograph (prepared circa 1885), the 'height of this Indian is six feet two inches; weight 170 pounds. He is celebrated for his fleetness, having surpassed every Indian, American, and Mexican against whom he has run.'
