This photograph shows several members of the Kiowa Tribe in front of the Memorial Building in Topeka, Kansas. An article from the Topeka Daily Capital, May 16, 1921, states that Chief "Chain-To" was in town to speak of his family's involvement with the Baptist Church and to promote the silent film "Daughter of Dawn" by Norbert A. Myles. In the film Chief "Chain-To" portrayed the chief of the Kiowa. The 1920 movie based on a Comanche legend premiered at the city auditorium and was sponsored by the American Legion.
