This Snake chief, Tev Gui, was photographed in the ceremonial dress of an antelope priest for a Snake Dance. Edward S. Curtis posed this shot after his first viewing of a ceremonial Snake Dance. About a decade after this photo was taken, Curtis was invited back to actively participate in the dance as an adopted Snake priest. He wrote that he was awestruck by this experience. Photographed ca. 1900.
