A group of Native Americans at the dedication of Haskell Institute's stadium in Lawrence, Kansas. The man in the top row, second from right, is Two Guns White Calf, who was the model for the Indian head buffalo nickel. Established in 1884 as the Indian Industrial Training School, Haskell Institute evolved into what is now Haskell Indian Nations University. When this photograph was taken in 1926, Haskell Institute provided education and vocational training to Native American students at the elementary, secondary, and post-secondary levels.

Date: Between October 27, 1926 and October 30, 1926
