Personal photograph collection donated by James Hockenhull of his father Floyd Hockenhull's adoption by Two Guns White Calf in 1928

His son James Hockenhull has donated these photos his father handed down to him along with his story of the ceremony. Floyd Hockenhull was deeply appreciative and very proud to have been adopted by these men as their brother and continued to celebrate his adoption throughout his life.
