This photograph shows a group of Kiowa Indians and perhaps their interpreter, 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.

Date: May 18, 1921
